In the spirit of Thanksgiving (3 days away), can somebody please tell me the difference between Puten and Truthahn?

I have this feeling that it's female vs. male? But then I thought a male turkey could be called a capon in English, a mistake which once seemed to have cost me a friendship, but I later found out it is a castrated rooster.

My German husband thinks there is no difference and we have actually asked at deli counters and they tell us there is no difference. It's all very strange, isn't it?
