You could split your loft in two halves breeders in one half flyers in the other

One way is to go by their actions. Males will court the hens by cooing, spinning, puffing their neck, bowing, fanning the tail, and chasing them. The hens are usually quiet and only coo when they need to (to warn others to stay away, or in a fight over something).
Or you can feel their pelvic bones, right before the vent between the legs. If they are touching, it is male, if they are spaced, it's a hen. It can be tough depending on the bird, especially if the hens have not laid yet, BUT at that age, you can get a pretty good guess.

A 100% way to tell for a hen..is when she lays eggs.. sometimes that is the only way to tell. and then if her eggs are fertile her mate is a cock bird.. if you get four eggs you may have two hens.. no eggs perhpaps two males.. and other infertile scenarios..

DNA sexing can be done at any age to determine the sexes.

As pointed out, if she lays eggs, then she is definitely a "she"

Usually after 4 months, cock and hen can be found out by observation of behavior with rest of flock.
