Basic Chickens

In the overworld, you can find log, sand, flint, and bone chickens.

Some chickens in a roost.

In the nether, soul sand and nether quartz chickens are present.

Colored chickens are crafted with dye and an egg. To craft, place an egg in the middle of the crafting table and place 8 dye pieces in a square around the egg.

Starting with Chicken Breeding

Make a Chicken Catcher using Egg, Stick and Feather to be able to turn the chickens into "items", (you can cook them as items too!)

Pick a type of chicken

View all of the recipes (below) that chicken is a part of

Set up one pen for each recipe that chicken is a part of

Throw one the chosen chicken in each pen (either with net, lasso or eggs)

As you breed the mates that you need, place them into your breeding pens and have at it

Inbreed your chickens until they get sick stats (best is 10/10/10), they always start off at 1/1/1.

(optional) put your beauties on display! Have one of each in a hen house to keep track of which ones you already have

Advice: once you have 3 of any given chicken, put one of them in a holding pen (like the hatchery hen house or just a in a chest). This way you will always have a "backup" chicken. Continue breeding as much as you like.
