[view][talk] This article is about the mob. For the item it drops, see Chicken (Item).

Chickens are a passive mob in Minecraft. They drop raw chicken and feathers when killed. Chickens can spawn from thrown eggs or Chicken Spawn Egg. They are very common, especially in Swamp Biomes. When walking, they may drop Eggs. Chickens can be bred using any type of seeds.

Two Chickens high in an Extreme Hills Biome.


  • Due to Chickens spawning from Eggs, /summon, naturally and Spawn Eggs, they and Cows are the only mobs in Minecraft to be spawned four different ways aside from breeding. 
  • Nether Wart apparently counts as a seed. Although Chickens will not chase a player with it in their hand, it can make them breed.
