Minecraft: Animal Breeding Guide – How-To Breed All Animals! (2021)

This quick guide will show you how to breed all the animals in Minecraft. We’ll show how to breed animals and what you need to do so.

The Basics of Breeding Animals

To breed animals in Minecraft you will need to feed each one a different type of food. After the animals are fed, hearts will appear indicating that they are ready to breed. If another animal of the same type is fed, and they are within eight blocks of each others, they will breed and produce a baby.

These two bred animal cannot re-breed for more than five minutes. In most cases, the adult will mature into a baby in twenty minutes. Breeding animals can generate a little XP.

You will need to train them before you can breed cats. Cats can be tamed by giving them raw cod or salmon until they show signs of affection and a collar.
