Nice finds and photos, esp. the morels and chickens. Most ID's appear correct, however, your 'honeys' are almost definitely a species of cortinarius (the 'cortina' is visible on all the specimens, and the rust brown of the spores is visible on the stem of the big guy front and center). Your 'jacks' (though I can't see if there's a ring) could well be honeys. In the first case you may have misidentified a poison, in the second you may have overlooked a fine edible. Honeys have a pure white (not cream, as with jacks) spore print. No offense intended, just sayin'...Aaron Turnbull September 21st, 2019 at 6:49 pm

On second thought - at least one other forager thinks your photo does look like honeys, (to see some photos of what I believe are more 'typical', and these spore printed white, view my gallery of Sept. '19), and of your jacks, I've never positively identified this species so I might be talking our of class. That said, I'm always overly suspicious of what I've 'hopefully' found, and I may take that same grain of salt viewing the ID's posted by others.Aaron Turnbull September 30th, 2019 at 8:01 am
