Chicken is definitely a nice implementation and its eggs are great. There are a lot of them, and the Chicken distribution includes a command-line tool, "chicken-install", that makes it dead easy to download and install them.

I tend to use Gambit rather than Chicken, usually, but I have to admit that Chicken's huge collection of libraries is always a temptation, and sometimes I give in to it.
