Does anyone know the difference among fowl, livestock, and poultry, or they are all the same?

Thanks a lot.

    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”!
