Chicken owners around the world can tell you about chicken math. Chances are, if you have ever owned a chicken, you already know what I am talking about.
You see, the thing with chickens is, they are so cheap to buy (relatively), easy to care for and fun to have around. Unlike other pets, they are useful too!
Once they are old enough hens start producing eggs, sometimes one a day per hen. At some point, you may experience the effects of chicken math.
What is chicken math? Chicken math is the process by which chicken owners count their chickens that defies all standard mathematical principles.
In the “normal” world, 1 + 1 = 2. With chicken math, if you go to the feed store to buy two chicks 1 + 1 = at least 4 or 5. Sometimes 10 if there is a good deal.
Whether you buy chicks or chickens, eventually most of your chicken population is going to wind up producing eggs. The number of eggs produced will quickly exceed what you can eat at home.
This is where most creative chicken owners decide to start an egg farm. You see, everybody wants to know their food comes from happy, well cared for farm animals.
Whether you are a meat-eater or lacto ovo vegetarian, fresh eggs from a local chicken farmer are much better than those you find mass-produced in a grocery store. It feels good to support community members.
If you want to start offering eggs, you’ll need to come up with a name for your egg farm. To help get your creative juices flowing, I’ve gathered some great ideas from around the web for you!

Coming Up With a Slogan for Your Egg Farm
A slogan is, of course, different from your name. It’s like Kentucky Fried Chicken. Everyone knows they are “Finger Lickin Good”.
Kentucky Fried Chicken is their business name and Finger Lickin Good is their slogan.
Keep in mind that you don’t need a slogan. A business name or farm name will absolutely be sufficient. A slogan is typically a catchy phrase to help people remember you.

Keeping It Legal
When starting and naming any business, including an egg farm, you’ll want to make sure you check your local regulations for registering the name if need be. In many areas, you’ll have to file some sort of paperwork to keep things on the up and up.
In addition, you will want to check local regulations regarding the sale of eggs. Eggs are food and, because of that, there are often regulations that must be followed as far as how they are handled and stored. You may even need a special permit or license to sell them.
If you are selling hatching eggs, those may have an entirely different set of regulations. It is always best to look into what you need to keep your business on the up and up BEFORE you get started.
Choosing a name for your egg farm is a fun and exciting step towards the process of helping your chickens pay for themselves or even, provide a little extra income for your family.
Ultimately, if you offer a good quality product with great customer service, the name won’t matter as much as your reputation. Egg businesses tend to be local so be sure to maintain ties to your community and word of mouth will spread quickly enough.
