Where to find a parrot in Minecraft
There’s a 0.2 % chance of a parrot spawning in Minecraft, and that too in just jungle biomes. You can find them in a group at Y=70 or above on logs, leaves, or grass blocks.

Each seed has a 1/10 chance of successfully taming a parrot. Hence, repeatedly feed the bird until you can no longer feed it. This will indicate that the parrot is now tamed as you cannot feed tamed parrots in Minecraft.
A tamed parrot sits on your shoulder and imitates the voices of nearby mobs. It can also dance and is arguably one of the most fun pets to have in the game.
Fun fact – Tamed parrots in Minecraft only eat chocolate cookies but instantly die after doing so. The developers intentionally added this mechanic to inform players about the ill effects of feeding chocolate to parrots in real life.
Can you breed parrots in Minecraft?
Parrots in Minecraft do not have a baby form because of which you cannot breed them. Feeding two parrots that are close to each other won’t do anything, and the only way to spawn a parrot is through the spawn egg in Creative.
