    Anyone?
    I have a flock of Exchequers and I need to figure out which rooster to keep. I am aiming for the whiter ones. I am looking forward to seeing pictures of what I consider the most beautiful chicken pattern. I don't think I have posted here enough to be able to post pictures, tho. Thanks for starting this thread. Is there anywhere to get an idea on a standard of coloring?

    Hi all, I just have one Exchequeuer chick bought as part of a group of day-olds from MyPetChicken, and readily adopted by a broody Buff Orpington sitting on a clutch of eggs. She is absolutely gorgeous at the age of 8 weeks, even though the "checkering" is still a bit uneven as she develops. She does have black spotting on her legs, which I'm curious about; none of the other chicks or hens have it, so is it part of the breed? As far as personality, she's definitely the shyest/flightiest of the bunch, but I'm hoping to win her over in time. They're a beautiful breed that really stand out in a mixed flock!
