How to tame a Parrot in Minecraft

Intro


While a parrot doesn’t offer much in utility or items like a cow or chicken in Minecraft, and definitely doesn’t provide protection like a wolf or a polar bear, it would be a shame to not add such an animal to your collection.

Where To Find Parrots in Minecraft


It will admittedly be a bit difficult to find a parrot due to how rare they are. They only spawn in jungle biomes and with 0.2 chance of them even spawning in the first place.

Thankfully, due to how unique their colors can be along with the fact that they tend to be in groups it is not impossible to find them. You can find them on logs, leaves or grass blocks within the jungle biome.

Behavior


As is implied above, Parrots are passive animals, meaning that they will not attack even when they themselves are attacked. Instead when they take damage from anyone hostile towards them, they will fly upwards to defend themselves. Eventually however they will tire out and have to fly back down again, leaving themselves vulnerable to future attacks.


If they are slain by you, they will drop one to three experience points and one to two feathers.

Keep in mind that parrots are not afraid of crowding around other creatures including mobs that are hostile to you.


Parrots also have the ability to mimic certain noises, much like real parrots. They can imitate any mob within a twenty block radius of their position and any noise that they make in imitation can be discerned from the original due to it being at a higher pitch.


Parrots can also be seen dancing near a jukebox with a music disc inside, where they will visibly wiggle around in tune with the music.

They will do this even when perched upon your shoulder.


How To Tame Parrots in Minecraft


In a Nutshell


To tame a parrot, you’ll first have to find a stray cat. Once you do, switch over to a melon seeds, seeds, pumpkin seeds or beetroot seeds, slowly approach it and finally continue feeding the cat until hearts appear above its head. These hearts symbolize the success of taming. You will likely have to feed it multiple times to complete the taming process.


To tame a parrot you will need almost any kind of seed. The types that you have to choose from include wheat, melon, pumpkin, and beat seeds. Whenever you feed a parrot any one of these types of seeds, you have a one and three chance of taming the parrot. If at first it doesn’t work, simply keep trying until you finally succeed.


Once you have your tamed parrot, you will have a limited number of things that you can accomplish with your new pet. Like many pets that you tame, a parrot will follow you until you press the use button on them which will command them to sit and stay in place.

Alternatively you can also have them perch themselves on your shoulder by walking through them. In fact you even have the ability to wear parrots on your shoulders should you desire it.

A parrot will hop off of the players shoulder should the following occur:


  1. If the player takes damage.
  2. If they fall off a ledge that causes them to take damage.
  3. If the player is in water no matter how deep.
  4. If they sleep in a bed.
  5. If the player is in lava.


Conclusion


Though a parrot may not add much value in terms of the player’s survival, no one can say that they would not make worthwhile companions. Among the many pets that you are capable of having it is safe to say that they are among the most colorful and unique.
