    I think it means no poultry. Try to get it changed or ask for an exception.

    It means to include poultry, but it sounds to me like the language is a little ambiguous... If you say, had a few clucks in your yard as "house pets" and didn't use them for commercial purposes you might be able to get away with it. After all, there are plenty of people keeping "pet livestock" within formerly restricted areas such as pygmy goats, pot bellied pigs and miniature horses. *shrug*
