Sheeps are known as one of the most plentiful and useful mobs encountered in Minecraft. They are able to often be found wandering aimlessly throughout the Overworld. The main aim of sheep is to supply wool and raw mutton of cooked mutton if killed while on fire.
Can you make a sheep mate in Minecraft? If the answer to the question is yes, then how to do so? You are able to make sheep mate in Minecraft by feeding two sheep that are standing close to each other, wheat. A baby sheep called lamb is produced, which has a big head and small body, just like the other baby mobs. If they are killed, they drop nothing, and wool is able to only be obtained from them after they grow into adults. If two parents of the sheep have the same color, they produce a lamb of the same color. For instance, if two sheep are dyed red, and they are bred then the lamb will be a red as well. Please keep in mind that breeding two different colored sheep will either make a white sheep, a sheep of one of the parent’s colors, or a mixture of the two.
Here is the list of the compatible colors if you want to make a sheep mate or different colored baby sheep in Minecraft:
- Lapis Lazuli + Cactus Green = Cyan
- Lapis Lazuli + Bone Meal = Light Blue
- Lapis Lazuli + Bone Meal + 2 Rose Red = Magenta
- Lapis Lazuli + Pink + Rose Red = Magenta
- Rose Red + Lapis Lazuli = Purple
- Rose Red + Bone Meal = Light Pink
- Orange + Dandelion Yellow = Orange
- Inc Sac + Bone Meal = Gray
- Cactus Green + Bone Meal = Lime Green
- Gray + Bone Meal = Light Gray
- Purple + Pink = Magenta
Before making a sheep mate in Minecraft, you need to prepare the materials. Those include the wheat and the sheep. Once you have found the required materials, you will have to find two sheep to breed. In case you are having a hard time on finding sheep, you are able to summon a sheep using a cheat or you are able to use a spawn egg. Please take a note that the sheep will need to be close together when breeding, so you have to build a fence in order to keep the two sheep from running away.
With the wheat selected in the hot bar, the next step that you have to do is to feed the wheat to each of the sheep, one at a time.
