Feather pigmentation (Q)

Can anyone enlighten me on the pigmentation agents in bird feathers. Is 
there a common class of compounds involved as in flowers and how is the 
pigment distributed. Is it, for instance, homogenous within the relevant 
parts of the feathers or is it surface deep only. I would be grateful 
if answers could be emailed directly to kennjo.canberra.dialix.oz.au 
since I might easily miss a posting to the list. Many thanks in advance
