Went out two days ago and spotted two fresh large hens. However they were inside a fenced area with a no trespassing sign.

Re: Hens shaggys puffbalss and more hens

You know the worst thing about hens? You can only carry a few at a time because they are so heavy!

I went out today to a new spot that I thought would be really good because of the amount of dead and dying oaks (sorry to see so many die). First I found a youngster which I left to get bigger and then I found one that's about 2 pounds, not too big and then I found the biggest one of the season. I'm guessing it weighed about 10 to 12 pounds before I dressed it for the bag. I had to cut it into sections and left a good bit of it on the ground. I bring big laundry bags to put hens in and I had to cut it up to get it safely into the bag.

I had to take them to the car because there was no way I was going to carry 10 pounds of bulky shroom plus my back pack.

Went back out and found 9 more. All but one were well over 3 pounds. There was one that was probably only 10 ounces. Divided them up between my backpack and a laundry bag and stumbled back to the car. My backpack is a really big plastic mesh bag type thing which is good for carrying a lot of hens. I had to put all my crap in my mushroom basket.

I sure have a lot of hens to clean tonight!

I'm eating part of one right now.

Here is the 1st 2 that I picked. That plastic container is one of those ice cream containers that cheap ice cream comes in. My basket is pretty big.

The hens were about a day older than I like but I haven't had a chance to go out for 3 days so I get what I got. They are very clean!

Re: Hens shaggys puffbalss and more hens

I went out for 2 hours today before work and found 12 more. I could barely carry them back to the car. In fact I dumped one bag on of hens on the ground and had to pick them up.

I gave 2 to a co-worker and will have to get the others cleaned tomorrow before I go back out. Somebody stop me! I can't stop picking hens. I'm up to 95 this year of which over half are in the freezer or dehydrated in bags and jars.

If you lived closer I'd say come and get some! I have 7 on the trampoline right now. I want them to get some pore side up sun exposure to increase the Vit D levels. Never know when you're going to need that extra Vit D to fight off viruses.
