Weird mushroom

Can anyone identify this mushroom? It looks more orange in the picture, but it’s like a salmon color in person. I barely touched it with a glove and it was kind of squishy but i didn’t push hard enough to pop it. It’s growing on what i assume was an old wooden telephone pole that we cut up. The wooden log was here long before we moved in, we just cut it up into smaller portions. I posted this to a couple of other reddits. Not sure where to exactly get my answer/info for it.

Chicken?

I’m assuming this is chicken - southern UK. Never found this before. Is this past it? A bit tricky to get to, so won’t bother if it’s a bit too old?

Is this Reishi ready for harvest?

Hi there from Southern Appalachia in the eastern US! I found these mushrooms on a fallen hemlock, and am wondering if they are ready to harvest. It seems maybe ants are eating them as of today (pic below)? I am thinking of slicing, drying, then freezing them. I would then grind or steep into teas, or extract with alcohol as needed from the freezer bags. I would appreciate any harvesting or processing tips.

I am including photos taken 4 days ago (5/16) for reference, then photos from today (5/20).

4 days ago.........

What is this spongy fibrous mushroom/mold thingy growing out of my friends shower walls?

Somewhat recently visted a friend who just bought a really old house and there are these spongy things that keep growing on the tiles in different spots in the shower every couple weeks.

They seem to have a vertically fibrous somewhat spongy texture, however you can somewhat easily wipe them off with a tissue only leaving a black and red smear where the thing was. It feels like not-quite-hardened jello and smells like rotten fish if wiped off but it doesn't have a smell if just left alone.

They grow overnight within just a few hours and there's a red creamy substance on their underside, i assume it's some type of fungus just by how fast they grow and due to the texture but i've got zero clue which type it could be, sent the picture to another friend who is a agricultural biologist and he's got no clue either.

There is a ton of mold in that building but that's just typical black and grey mold, not some alien thingy growing on tiles of all places, like it's taunting us.
