Just heard today that, the bylaws of my neighberhood, dont allow livestock.  I wonder if fowl is considered livestock.  What do you think?

nope rabbits and chickens are poultry here. we fought our town ordinances and they have to allow us 12 layers in town and had to get a poultry permit. by law with the ordinace already in place legally they couldn't deny us but they sure did put the limits on it to go with it. took alot to do it but they couldn't deny us for food to feed our family.

of course my neighbers caused us so much grief i raise them outside of town at a friends now. if u use they r for pets they can and will deny it and make u get rid of them. check see if there is any ordinaces for chickens and fowls. i was lucky mine already had one in place but some places don't. i only had to fight half the battle on mine.

It depends on where you live. Some places exclude a few  hens in the livestock description, some make no exceptions. You'll have to find out the definition in your bylaws of just what livestock is. It should be spelled out.
