Has anyone every heard of one factor in determining the sex of chicks by when startled the hens will run but the roosters will not?

I have heard of that, but I'm not sure how accurate it is.... I have hens that run right up to people and are not scared of anything, and a rooster who hides in the corner...

Thanks for the replies..I had heard that and my 6wk old chicks were startled today and 5 ran and 2 didn't. Don't know which are pullets or cockerals yet. Old wives tale I guess.
