How to Breed Villagers in Minecraft

In Minecraft, there are so many different types of animals you can breed. You can breed cows, pigs, wolves, and even chickens. Another mob that can be bred is a villager.


Villagers are great in Minecraft. You can use them to create a source of Emeralds for your base or even create an efficient Iron Golem farm for infinite iron in your world. In this tutorial, we will teach you the basics of how to breed villagers.



How to Breed Villagers in Minecraft?


In a Nutshell:


To breed villagers, find two villagers you want to breed, you need to get them in a room alone together in the presence of beds. Then acquire enough food to give to the villagers. When you throw the food on the ground near the villagers, their “willingness” to breed will increase.


Step-by-Step Guide(with Pictures):


Here is the step-by-step pictorial guide you need to follow to breed villagers in minecraft:


Step-1 The first step to breeding villagers in Minecraft is to find a village. You need villagers before you can start breeding them. Once you have found a village, and in turn found the two villagers you want to breed, you need to get them in a room alone together.


Step-2 For this to work, there are only a few things to keep in mind. The first is that there have to be at least 3 beds in the room that you have trapped your villagers in. Depending on how many villagers you want to be bred, that is the number of beds you need in your room. The villagers will want to fill all of the beds in the room. This means that the more beds you have, the more your villagers will breed.


For the beds in your breeding room, there needs to be a two-block height above the beds. This is so that the villagers have enough room to get on and off of the bed without suffocating and for the bed to count.



Now that you have your two villagers in the same room together, if they are “willing,” the villagers will breed. This will only happen as long as there are unclaimed beds in the room.




And after a short amount of time, a baby will appear and claim its bed. You can repeat this process as many times as you would like, as long as you have unclaimed beds in the area.



How to Breed Villagers with Gardens?


One good way to automate the villager breeding process is with Gardens. If you get villagers in a garden, they will automatically harvest the crops and place them in their inventory. Villagers have their own inventories and this is how they get more “willingness” to breed. 


All you have to do in this situation is to create a garden in the area where the villagers are and plant some seeds. If you have any extra unclaimed beds, the villagers will take care of the rest of the work and breed themselves until all of the unclaimed beds are claimed.



How to Breed Villagers by Throwing Food?


Breeding villagers by throwing food is the easiest way to breed villagers. All you need to do is acquire enough food to give to the villagers. When you throw the food on the ground near the villagers, they will run over and try to pick up the food. Once they have enough food in their inventory, their “willingness” to breed will increase.


Villagers become willing by either having 12 carrots, 12 potatoes, 12 beetroots, or 3 bread in their inventory. Remember, each villager must have at least one of these four types of food (along with the right amount) in their inventory in order to breed.


How to Breed Villagers through Trading?


When a villager is found, the only way to allow it to begin breeding is by its “willingness.” Now that you know how to increase its “willingness,” you need to know how to unlock it. Doing this is fairly simple though. If the villager has a new trade that you have not completed before, it is a 100% chance that the “willingness” of the villager will unlock. If it is a trade that you have already completed once before, it is a 20% chance. You can use this as a way to increase the chances of your villagers taking the food in their inventories and breeding.

FAQs


Q. Do Villagers Breed on their own?


A. Villagers do not breed on their own. Villagers need to unlock their willingness by completing a trade with a player. Once that trade is done and there are enough unclaimed beds, the villagers will trade when they have their required food.


Q. How Do You Make a Villager Spawn in an Empty Village?


A. There is no way to make a villager spawn in an empty village. The best way to populate an empty village is to find a zombie villager and cure it. If you want to know how to cure a zombie villager, you can read this link.


Conclusion


Villagers are a great source of emeralds in your Minecraft world. You can also use them to make iron golem farms, or even just to have roaming around your base so you aren’t so alone in this vast realm. Now that you know how to breed villagers, go on an adventure, and find some. Try to tame them and see how many Emeralds you can get. Maybe you can just make your entire base out of emerald blocks. Good luck!
