Acetone

Acetone on a cloth should do it.


Before you do

Before you apply that acetone, lift the problem feathers and pad under them with some absorbent material to prevent the acetone thinned material from soaking more feathers. Next time use a long necked polyethelene funnel (the kind sold at marine supply stores)to deliver the goods and prevent accidentals.


Lacqure thinner

Has worked fine on getting resign off bird feathers. Even if some of the other feathers get soaked, it will evaporate or you can use a hair dryer set on low and it will dry the feather off when you get the resign off.
