Upon further reading it does seem that there's a lot of latitude on this issue, and a lot of different permutations. (The large lot provision is apparently in place in Guelph and Surrey, but the farming community might have influenced the inflection of that... remembering the chicken quota story I linked to previously.)

Brampton, for example, apparently limits households to two domestic/game fowl (members of farm organizations are exempt from this cap), with offspring allowed until three months of age; coops are to be a minimum of 25 feet from any dwelling and six feet from property lines. (Someone had asked about squab/pigeons in another thread and they're also covered here in detail.)

There are any number of cases where you'd imagine that sanity would have prevailed, but when you look at the resulting tangle of red tape, it's clear that common sense isn't the coin of the realm here. It will be interesting to see how this drama unfolds.
