DNA Extraction from odd sources...

I'm posting this for a friend, hope you can help.


        I'm looking for a method of isolating DNA from feathers (esp. Swan 
feathers) if this is possible. This is in pursuance of a DNA fingerprinting 
study on swan populations in the UK, and has been made neccessary due to recent 
changes in legislation relating to blood and tissue sampling from swans.

        Any references to methods or concerning the general field would be 
greatly appreciated.

Many Thanks,
                Janet Mason
