You can request the specific version 1.0 of an egg named "foo" using
chicken-install foo:1.0

Unfortunately, it will retrieve the latest versions of any dependencies.
What we need now is a "bundler" workalike for CHICKEN.  Hint, hint... :)

Another simple way is to set up a proxying version of henrietta which
will fetch the requested egg's sources of the real henrietta and save
a copy for future reference.  That would require a little bit of hacking,
but shouldn't be too hard.
