i'm thinking of giving my backyard flock a farm name but i am just curious if you have to register the name somewhere in most states to use it officially. i'm also wandering if anyone is using the farm name 'Bird in Hand' for a farm that actually exists or raises birds of any kind! the only one i found that is called by that seems to not be a real farm but a family trying to make stuff for themselves. all i can find is a blog that doesn't even list where they are located at other than a story saying they were traveling to Albany (think NY maybe?) i'm also trying to think of other possible names for a farm or 'micro' farm since i only have about 1/2 acre here. i keep bantams mostly-faverolles, cochins and adding a pair of d'uccles when they are old enough to start breeding. i also have been adding lots of perennial plants like hosta, daylilies and iris to the yard to eventually divide and sell, so if those items help to give some ideas for a name.
