pl. polenis  

The sense ‘poultry’ seems to be unique to English sources (also attested in Middle English and Latin), and presumably developed through association of the word with the pullet word-family (which is etymologically related).

The OED (Third edition, 2006) suggest that ‘pulley’ is a transferred use of the sense ‘foal’, rather than a separate word.
