How can I breed villagers in Minecraft?

Step-by-Step Guide:

The following step-by-step pictorial guide will show you how to breed villagers in Minecraft.

Step-1 The first step in breeding villagers in Minecraft is to find and locate a village. Once you have found the village, with two other villagers that you want to breed, get them in room alone together.

Step-2 To do this, you will need your villagers to be confined in a room with at least 3 beds. The more beds you provide in your room, the more villagers will want to pair up and have children. Consequently, instead of only five people living with you if you have ten beds in a room, there could be twenty people living with you over time.

The beds in your breeding room need a two-block height – this is so the villagers can climb on and off it without suffocating, but also to keep bed count as accurate as possible. Villagers in Minecraft -1

How do you breed villagers in Minecraft by throwing food?

Breeding villagers is a good way to increase the number of villagers in your town. The easiest way to breed villagers, though, is throwing food near them and letting them fill their inventory with food. Once they have enough food on hand, you’ll see an increased willingness for breeding from that villager.

To make villagers willing, they first need 12 carrots, potatoes, beetroots or bread in their inventory. In order for villagers to breed, they must have at least one of the four types of food listed.

Can I breed Villagers by Trading them?

Once a villager is found, the only way for them to produce offspring (or start breeding) is if they are “willing.” Once you know how to make them more “willing,” it then becomes possible for you to unlock them. If a villager has unlocked trade requests that you have not completed before, then they will be more willing to take your food. If they do not have any trades that you haven’t completed already, then there is a 20% chance that they will accept your offer.
