#1 I am hoping this is a Turkeytail. The pure white pieces, are upsidown fungi, the same as the others.

This is a wild fungi fruiting on a maple log.

#3 This one is 3" tall, with a 3" diameter cap. The stem is about 3/4" diameter. The stem broke off and is laying on top of the gills.

On another site, (not the below links!) I have received "Probably Turkeytail" on #1

I must double check the pores, under the fungus to be sure they match turkey tail and not the look alikes. https://www.mushroomexpert.com/spore_print.html

Also, #3 is maybe a Agaricus. https://www.mushroomexpert.com/agaricus.html

Can anyone else chime in?
