If you like spending time outside… and if you like the taste of chicken… then you’re in for a real treat.

Chicken Of The Woods, also known as the Chicken Mushroom, is a choice edible fungus whose brilliant colors illuminate the forests for several months throughout the year…. and it’s all happening right now!
