Re: > "The best I could come up with was  landuse=farmland +
produce=live_animal + animal=chicken"

It's more common to use landuse=farmyard for poultry farms, and if you
use produce=* it's more common to specify eggs, meat or live_animal=*
depending on what is sold.

To specify that the farmyard is a poultry farm: farmyard=poultry,
animal=chicken, or livestock=poultry (or =chicken) are sometimes used.

As mentioned a week or two ago, there are a couple of different ways
to describe areas like paddocks for horses, cattle yards, sheepfolds,
poultry yards, etc, and for specifying pasture areas used for certain
animals.

Mostly these are on landuse=farmyard or landuse=meadow

See thread starting in:
https://lists.openstreetmap.org/pipermail/tagging/2019-August/047500.html

1) landuse=meadow + meadow=pasture (9000 uses), =paddock (300 uses); -
not specific

2) landuse=animal_keeping + animal_keeping=horse, =cow, =sheep (2232
uses, 1855 are =horse)

3) landuse=farmyard + farmyard=feedlot, =poultry, =cattle yard, =dairy
etc (1500 uses)

4) animal=yes + landuse=meadow/farmyard/etc; values =chicken, =cow,
=cattle, =goat, =sheep, etc (2137 uses with meadow/farmyard - but
"=yes" is most of them, and it's also used for zoo animal, pets)

5) produce=* + landuse=meadow/farmyard/etc; common values milk, =eggs,
=cheese, =meat, =live_animal, or rarely =<name of animal> (190 uses)

6)  livestock=* + landuse=meadow/farmyard/etc.; values =cattle,
=poultry, =horse, =pig, =chicken (132 uses)

Also see crop=* + landuse=meadow/farmyard; values =<name of animal>,
=poultry, =dairy, -=fish, =milk, etc - (poultry 468 times, dairy 187,
fish 64 - but I wouldn't use "crop=" this way myself)

(For aquaculture, most common is: landuse=aquaculture +
aquaculture=<name of organism>; egg =shrimp, =fish, =seaweed, etc.)
