    Close, that is Laetiporous sulphureus or Chicken of the Woods.
    Hen of the Woods is called Grifola frondosa and is gray in color.

    I would concur! I read that they taste sort of like chicken too and although it wasn't a perfect description, there was kinda some chickeny flavor. This was one of the small ones. There are several others the size of basketballs. Guess a return trip may be prudent.
