Hawthorne Country Store Celebrates Chicktopia

Hawthorne Country Store hosts its annual spring Chick Day, Chicktopia, on Saturday, March 11 in Escondido, Fallbrook, and Santee. This complimentary annual celebration will host more than 100 varieties of baby poultry; the event is a great way to learn about raising your own personal backyard flock. Hundreds of families typically attend each year.

Welcome to Hawthorne Country Store’s Chicktopia

With egg prices at all-time highs in Southern California, and no relief in sight, home flocks continue to expand in both rural and urban areas. Hawthorne Country Store’s Chick Day offers an educational opportunity for families to learn about raising chickens at home.

“More and more families are finding that chickens are pets that come with great benefits, such as producing protein, creating fertilizer, and recycling waste,” says Heather Thelen, owner of Hawthorne Country Store. “We are excited to once again bring this event to our communities (Escondido, Fallbrook and Santee) and share all our chicken knowledge.”

Get First Dibs At The Peep Show

There will also be a Peep Show on Friday, March 10 from 6PM to 8PM. The $50 charge covers two adults, 21 and over. There will be hors d’oeuvres, beverages, and entertainment. This will give customers the first pick of rare, exotic, and the best egg laying breeds. This unique event sells out every year and is only available for ticket purchasers.
