Escondido is flocking with excitement over Hawthorne Country Store’s 15th Annual Chick Day event that will be held on Saturday, March 10 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. This annual celebration and country market is the largest in Southern California with over 100 varieties of baby poultry available at one time.

As egg prices go up and the slow food movement continues to gain ground in Southern California, home flocks continue to expand in the hearts and yards of Southern Californians in both rural and urban areas.

Hawthorne Country Store’s Chick Day expects another record-breaking year on March 10, as hundreds of attendees come out early for a first chance at the unique chick breeds the event offers.

A special addition to this year’s event, hot glass and mixed media artist James Stone of Stone & Glass will be making glass art come to life during the Chick Day festivities.

Just steps away in his glass studio on-site, James Stone will be bringing an art element to the day with specialty made glass chicks that celebrate the country lifestyle. Stone is best known for his use of color, and his unique process of casting glass hot out of the furnace. Each piece has a long creation cycle and requires a great deal of time, talent, and experience.

The Chick Day event will be held at the family-owned and operated Hawthorne Country Store. The event attracts hundreds of attendees that are looking for different types of chicks to breed.
