    I wanted to create this thread to bring exchequer fanciers, enthusiasts, and breeders together. I have noticed in the past years this breed is hard to find and slowly dying out. Few hatcheries have them and when they do they sell out quick and there is very few private breeders. Below a photograph of the promotional booklet that the original creator of the variety Mr Robert Miller used back in 1905. I found the picture at castle farm eggs

    Thanka! Those are great pictures. There are a few threads around with breeding questions about ELs, I was hoping this thread could be a gathering place for everyone to Chat, ask questions and improve and promote the variety.
