SAN DIEGO - Chick day is happening at the Hawthorne country store in Escondido. Once a year, they open their doors and sell more than 100 varieties of poultry. Lots of people in Southern California are switching to the slow food movement and starting their own coops. Store owners say many people love them as pets, especially since they serve up the best breakfast, fresh eggs.
