Chicken

Minecraft Mob

Chickens are passive animal mobs that have existed in Minecraft since Alpha. Chickens are slower than most mobs, but one ability unique to chickens alone, is that they can flap their wings when falling to prevent themselves from taking fall damage. Chicks can also flap their wings and prevent death in water , while other baby mobs drown in water deeper than 2 blocks. Chickens will follow players who are holding Seeds , and 2 chickens can be bred with Seeds, which is when they will enter "Love Mode", and spawn a chick directly. Alternatively, chicks can be spawned from Eggs , which adult chickens will lay every 5-7 minutes.Chicks are the baby counterpart of Chickens, and are the third smallest mob in the game. Any time an egg is thrown, there is a 12.5% chance that a chick will spawn, or a 0.390625% chance that 4 chicks will spawn from the same egg. You can be sure that a chick will spawn by breeding two chickens, which is why this is the preferred method. Chicks will always follow the nearest adult chicken. Like many baby mobs, chicks have an oversized head.
