Abstract: Different materials have different water socking ability and that makes it a hydrophobic and hydrophilic in nature. Biocomposite materials have become the need of current material development technologies. The immense use and application of biocomposite material is helping the researchers to upgrade the material’s composition as per need. In the current research, the life durability of chicken feather fiber based hybrid biocomposite materials, having epoxy resin CY- 230 thermoset polymer matrix is characterized. The prepared sample with 5wt% CFF and 3wt% Extracted Fish residue power (ERP), considered optimum composition during mechanical characterization was tested n different atmospheric conditions for 3 days. The conditions adopted are submerged in water, mustard oil, soda, milk and Lemon water. The weight readings and geometrical measurement are taken in every 12 hours. The result obtained shows that the minimum weight change of sample was the one immersed in water. The readings obtained shows that liquid socking ability becomes almost constant after 2 days i.e. 48 hours. The absorbability analysis concludes that the difference in the absorption rate and capacity depends on the viscosity of the immersing liquid.
