Wild Mushroom

Mushroom spawning on my rice hay planter beds? Are they edible?

I really have no idea since they just spawn by themselves for almost 3 or 4 days now, few are thick while most are thinly bodied. I checked the web and found out that one must seed mushroom spawn in order to harvest some. Since on my part, i never seeded any, i am quite weary to try eating this wild spawns else i might get poisoned. I’ll rather let them do their act and i think once the hay gets fully composted, they will eventually stop spawning.

I checked the net and found the characteristics of these wild mushroom somewhat similar to one mentioned below;

Now, it made me curios to checked is those wild mushroom are really edible… but how?
