When we are looking for mobs, we have several options in Minecraft, and every mob has its own specialties and characteristics. Parrots are one of the animals you can find in Minecraft. In Minecraft, parrots are passive mobs or animals. These Minecraft parrots are as beautiful as those we can see in real life, and they behave similarly. They can make perfect company in your Minecraft world.

Parrots were added in the 1.12 update version of the Minecraft game. They mostly emulate or copy the sounds of other mobs.

You can see so many colors of parrots in the game, such as blue, red, green, purple, yellow, grey, brown, and rainbow, among other possibilities.

Where to find a Parrot

Finding parrots is a very difficult task in Minecraft. And the spawning chances are just 0.2%. You can find parrots in 3 places:-

  1. Jungle
  2. Jungle Edge(Bedrock Version)
  3. Bamboo Jungle

How to Tame Parrots in Minecraft

When Parrots were first added to the Minecraft game, they could be tamed by feeding them cookies, but as soon as Mojang discovered that chocolate is bad for birds and can kill them, they made the change as soon as possible. Now, if you feed cookies to a parrot in Minecraft, it will die because of the chocolate chips in the cookies. This shift in game mechanics not only reflects a commitment to accuracy and responsibility but also serves as a subtle educational element, similar to online games for kids that incorporate safety and awareness into their gameplay experiences.

Follow these 3 steps to Tame a Parrot:-

  1. Obtain the Seeds
  2. Find a Parrot
  3. Feed the Parrot

Obtain the Seeds: Before finding the parrot, you need to find the seeds first. On the grass, you can easily find seeds. These seeds could be melon seeds or pumpkin seeds, beetroot seeds or wheat seeds. When you find the seeds, collect them.

They will dance to any sound as well as any kind of sound; you just need to put the disc in the jukebox, and they will start dancing.

Sound and Parrot

Cookies and Parrot

Cookies are really harmful to parrots. If you feed cookies to the parrot, then your parrot will die. because it gives fatal poison to the parrot.
