Parrots are the most uncommon mob in Minecraft, sitting on your shoulder and imitating the sounds of hostile creatures nearby.
Parrots won’t help players in battle or uncover hidden treasures, but they can still be valuable in a few ways. These colorfully feathered companions aren’t completely useless. If a player spots and tames a parrot throughout their adventures, the benefits they provide are worth remembering.
1) Looting feathers
Parrots can be killed and their feathers looted in Minecraft. However, this isn’t cost-effective, especially when gangs like chickens are around. When players equip the Looting enchantment on their weapon, the number of feathers that parrots drop can increase.
However, because parrots cannot be bred in vanilla Minecraft, this should only be used as a last option. Unless people are ready to use orders or spawn eggs to make other parrots, once a parrot is killed, it is gone.
2) Taming parrots
In Minecraft, players can kill and loot parrots for their feathers. However, this isn’t cost-effective, especially when there are mobs in the game such as chickens. When a player equips the Looting enchantment on their weapon, the number of feathers that parrots drop increases.
However, because breeding parrots isn’t allowed in vanilla Minecraft, this should only be used as a last option. Unless players utilize orders or spawn eggs to make other parrots, once a parrot is killed, it is gone forever.
3) Detect nearby mobs
In Minecraft, it’s critical to be mindful of potentially hazardous scenarios. A player who is aware of the presence of hostile mobs in a certain region, for example, can prevent being surprised by an attack.
The sounds of adjacent crowds can be imitated at a higher pitch by parrots. They can alert their masters to the presence of possible foes by doing so. It’s worth noting that these helpful birds can only imitate mobs that are 20 blocks or closer.
