    I am wanting to create a website for my chicken business of selling hatching eggs, chicks, started birds, and adults when available. I have no idea how to come up w/ a creative name. I am concentrating on the Ameraucana breed (Lavender's only right now) as well as silkies (specifically paints). Have other colored silkies right now and have paint eggs incubating. Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Our farm name is The Egg Box, because they lay in the egg box, we collect eggs in an egg box, and we sell eggs in an egg box. [​IMG]

    I have the same basic question: how do you come up with a cute or clever name for a poultry business? Something unique that isn't a rerun in one form or another is really hard to come by. I've tried various methods, including soliciting suggestions from everyone I know, which garnered some very interesting, thought questionable results. I've tried playing with phrases associated with poultry, and searching the Internet for any poultry related businesses. Surfing yielded some interesting discoveries, including, (sadly) the name I'd settled on a few years ago has since been used many times. So it's back to the drawing board for me! While I am a proponent of recycling, I crave individuality. I hope to develop my enterprise into more than a backyard operation which includes an Internet presence, so a unique name is crucial.

    From my experience as a directory assistance (411) operator, and all the research I've done, my advice would be to find a simple one or two word name, based on either your sir-name, your community, or a local geographical feature or landmark, such as a lake (or creek, canyon, mountain, bridge, etc). Try to avoid over used names like Inland Empire, Rocky Mountain, etc. Your business name will disappear in the crowd. Also, a name starting with a letter in the first third of the alphabet will increase your chances of getting noticed, since most lists are alphabetical, even on the Internet. Simple is usually better than cute, since cute is harder to take seriously. Also, avoid alternative spelling since it will likely just confuse your potential customers. Good luck!
