Where to find Parrots in Minecraft

Before we dive into the process of how to tame parrots in Minecraft, it’s best to know what biomes players will be able to find these lovely animals in. It’s important to note, that not all animals will spawn in the same location, and there are multiple biomes for players to explore.

One of the caveats in regards to parrots is that they’re extremely rare to find across the Minecraft map, so much so, that you’ll probably need to spawn into multiple servers until you find one.

Below is a quick overview of the spawn rates of Parrots within Minecraft, along with the biome they’ll spawn in.

  • Jungle
    • 0.2% chance

Parrots only spawn within the Jungle and have less than a 1% chance to appear within the game, so best of luck finding one.
