Tamed parrots in Minecraft

Taming a parrot


You will need to right-click or use seeds on a parrot to tame it. Keep feeding them seeds until hearts start appearing on top of the parrot’s head. Once hearts start coming out, the parrot is tamed.


Parrots also follow their owners like other tamed animals unless told to sit. You will have to be patient with them as parrots fly pretty slowly in Minecraft. Parrots can also perch on their owner’s shoulders and travel with them.


Like wolves or horses, parrots cannot help in day-to-day activities. Yet, they are a fantastic pet to have because of their adorable dance, mimicry, and ability to perch on players’ shoulders.
