I don't think so. Its some kind of shelf fungus.
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and proclaiming...."WOW What a Ride!!" -Mark Frost

It looks like pictures of Chicken of the Woods to me....someone on a mushroom forum said it is. Anyone else care to weigh in?

Thanks for all of your help :-)

It sounds like you had your mind made up before you posted.

Have a good day.

Hen of the Woods IS a shelf fungus.

It sounds like you made up your mind before you posted, too.....
Since you gave no information to back up your assertion, what's wrong with an innocent invitation for more opinions?

I think perhaps the opening poster meant, Chicken of the Woods (also a shelf fungus)?

I have no clue what it is but we do have a Fungi Forum here:
Perhaps someone who is knowledegable about the Hen/Chicken of the woods will recognize it.

My late father-in-law was good at identifying edible fungi but he did not pass the skill along to me.

Here are two links I found online that might help you. (I still wouldn't be brave enough to eat anything without an accurate identification. *Blush* )
