    It actually looks like a cross between silver partridge and partidge orpingtons...

    Maybe a Crele Orpington or cross.

    Almost looks like a Salmon Faverolle rooster with the coloring but it doesn't have the feathered legs.
    Here's one from google

    Doesn't have muffs and beard either, or the black wing patches...

    I knkw if you cross Silver duckwing and black breasted reds, you can get some golden duckwing, which looks similar to the OP's pic but different... that's why I think it could be partridge crossed with silver, that would explain the darker redish patches instead, but the goldenish hackles...

    Looks similar to a Crele Orpington.
