Monster Chicken

This was found in Southern Oklahoma this last weekend. A true monster. Thanks to Frank who helped me ID it, as I had never found one before while Morel hunting in these parts. Delicious!

Wow!! That is a MONSTER! My wife would be very jealous. The Chickens are her favorite. Nice find!!


Just when you think you aren't going to find any morels, something pushes you to climb that next hill. And once you get over that hill, guess what you find? That's right. NOTHING!

Re: Monster Chicken

Congrats David! Nice one. I've never found one this early here in MI. Enjoy!

Inside secret - I made some potato soup last fall, my kids love it. I snuck in some pieces of this mushroom and they, who don't like mushrooms normally, loved it. They thought it was pieces of ham. LOL! It had just taken on the flavors from the soup itself.

The best lessons are those learned before you wish you had known better, especially when thinking edible mushrooms.

Wow...beautiful L. cincinnatus!!! Will have to check our spots now that it's warmed up, although we've never found them this early here in W.MI., either.

Sauteed in butter with garlic and a splash of soy is the choice at our house...try them on a salad, or like the grandkids - cold out of the fridge! The love Chickie Mushrooms! :)

Blessed beyond measure!

Re: Monster Chicken

That's pretty amazing. Haven't found one of those yet, myself. I've been Morel hunting for about 5 years now...looking to branch off and start foraging for new kinds of the learning process.
I have never seen a...chicken! That thing is a monster, nice work!
