polarbear and ostrich dye

I was wondering if anyone can give me some info on dying techniques for polar bear and ostrich feathers? I've heard that the polar should be soaked in acetone for a couple of minutes to remove the natural oils. Any recommended dyes? What about the cleaning of the ostrich feather? Any good books?
Thanks
