The only way to tell wthout dna sexing is to place with a known hen and watch for male displaying,as male and female are the same visually. I hope that helps smick

I have been told that the hen beak is not as red as cocks. Is that right?

not true.
I think there are tiny visual differences (I reckon I'm pretty good at guessing lol) at picking hens and cocks after they reach a year old and before they get a ring (or not).
