In this study, hybrid composites were prepared using chicken feather as filler material. Hybrid composites were tested for tensile and flexural strength. Composites were prepared by hand-layup technique by varying the weight percentage of chicken feather (0, 4, 8 wt.%). Samples were tested according to ASTM standard. SEM images were studied to find the fracture and interfacial characteristics of the composites. Results indicated that, these composites can be used in domestic, automobile and structural applications, where minimal load is applied.
