Is it wild pleurotus ostreatus? Anything that would specifically point to it not be pleurotus ostreatus? I’ve been wanting to culture some wild p. ostreatus for a long while.

Definitely not “chicken-of-the-woods.”

The underside of Laetiporus sulphureus has pores, not gills. This looks like Pleurotus.
