    definitions of the words you questioned:

    1. fowl: A fowl is a bird, especially one that can be eaten as food, such as a duck or a chicken.

    2. livestock: Animals such as cattle and sheep which are kept on a farm are referred to as livestock.

    3. poultry: You can refer to chickens, ducks, and other birds that are kept for their eggs and meat as poultry. Also, meat from these birds is referred to as poultry.

    就 "fowl" 跟 "poultry" 而言,其兩者之意義非常之相近,可視為同意詞,皆意指”家禽”或”家禽肉”!

    "livestock" 就比較沒問題了,它指的就是”家畜”!

    livestock不是解作「牲口」、「牲畜」才對嗎?因為它指的不只是雞、鴨得家禽,還有牛、羊、馬得家畜啊!我唸地理科有關農業的課題時,老師都是這樣教的。

    fowl是countable,意思是家禽類,像雞,鴨等等

    livestock是家禽的總稱,泛指一切家禽

    poultry是uncoutable,意思也是家禽,只是是不可數名詞,不能加複數。

    其實都是家禽
