I do not believe that the Achilles tendon is the problem. The bones or joint may be bending out of shape. Perhaps the chick has been growing too fast. Is the production red a fast growing breed? Sometimes being fed a starter designed to promote fast growing can put stress on tender young legs. I would have to understand this chick's problem before suggesting a treatment plan. Perhaps an anti inflammatory drug could help.
