Red Sex-Link, or Rhode Island Red... maybe.. 

 

It's the shape that makes the breed, and the color that makes the variety.

I got this one as a trade for another standard chick I had. The woman said its a bantam from TSC. I called Mt. healthy and they told me the only bantams that come in the assorted order are Silver Seabrights, OEGB, Silkies and Mille fleur... which I thought was a color, not a breed.

Sebright, OEGB and Silkie are different breeds, though Mille Fleur and Silver are varieties. I obviously don't see any silver on that chick! It could be a OEGB..

I would lean toward OEG and, you are correct, mille fleur is a color.  You'll find a lot of hatcheries will use Mille Fleur bantam or Porcelain bantam as the breed name when they really mean mille fleur D'Uccle or porcelain D'Uccle.
