At 1st glance I was thinking they might be Turkey tail. There is a mushroom known has false Turkey tail. One way to identify the difference is the Turkey tail has a white underside . Both are common on oaks.  

 

The Turkey tail has a lot of medicinal qualities as well as boosting the Immune system.  The benefits are reaped through making tea than eating the mushrooms They are kind of leathery And not very palatable. 

 

 Thre tea doesn't taste very good.  But it is beneficial!
