    Bearded Mille Fleur Belgian d'Uccle Bantam?

    But neither has booties "feather footed" nor black tipped feathers.

    Plus this bird is a lighter shade of brown...more tan than burnt orange.

    What breed/color of chicken is this?

    The color is Golden Neck. She looks like a d'Anvers, but she should have a rose comb.

    Found it! Thanks juliechick.

    This bird is called a Thuringian Chicken.

    Did a search on "d'Anvers Chickens" and the exact same picture popped up.

    Beautiful bird!
