More egg-laying hens than chickens?

According to http://www.fao.org/faostat/en/#data/QA, there were 2,171,000 chickens in Latvia in 2017. According to http://www.fao.org/faostat/en/#data/QL, there were 2,310,000 egg-laying hens in Latvia in 2017. I don’t understand how can there be more egg-laying hens than chickens in general because the number of chickens should include egg-laying hens. Is that a mistake in the data? Both numbers come from official data. There is the same problem with 2017 data for Bangladesh, Democratic People's Republic of Korea, French Guiana, and Iceland.
