I'd say hens should also count as chickens... if they were in the farmyard.. though I agree it would be a chicken on the table and at the butcher's or supermarket.

I fail to see your point. Even though all hens are chickens, not all chickens are hens (there are cocks / roosters, too). Certainly you would not translate “oameni” by “teachers” because “teachers should also count as people,” would you?
