/statuses/show/{id}.json/ returns "favorite_count":0 instead real number on retweeted statuses

Hi all!
Hope you can help
I run my code to get numbers of “likes” aka “favorite_count” from each status.
There no a problem with tweets that this account created.
But there is the problem if it is retweeted status.
I get 0 in this case.
Please see this request. The number of “retweet_count” is OK in the both cases.
Is it a bug? or I need to run the other request?

Thanks!

The inner Tweet object (i.e. Tweet ID 844506452358303744) has the favorites / likes.

Yes, thanks! I already found this workaround, but why they not rerurn it like “retweet_count”?
