How reliable is feather growth sexing?

I've read in a few places that you can somewhat reliably sex chicks by how fast they feather in, compared to others in the same hatch. Wondering if anyone has done this with any success? I'm making picks this way with my last two hatches and will see how it works out.
this something like what you are talking about?
Oooh… by that my little chick seems like a boy… I'd like to know if this is a reliable method too….

I kinda want a roo >.> but I may have to resort to some old fashion "can i keep him? Dx" if it is…lolol
No, this is a concept by where you can determine gender somewhat accurately but looking at chicks around a week or so old. The ones with the faster feather growth are females...males have much smaller feathers at that point.
