Turkeys are tamable mobs that spawn in the Overworld.

Spawning Edit

Natural generation Edit

Turkeys naturally generate on grass blocks with 2 blocks of free space above it at light level of 9 or more.

Both male and female turkeys spawn together.

Turkeys are about 1 block tall and 1 block wide.

Drops Edit

Turkeys will drop 0-2 raw turkey and 0-2 feathers upon death. They drop 1 to 3 experience when killed by a player or a tamed wolf. They will still drop raw turkey even if set alight. The amount of raw turkey and feathers dropped is affected by the Looting enchantment.

Behavior Edit


Male and female turkeys

A group of male and female turkeys.

Turkeys are passive mobs, and will not attack you if you hit them, but will panic and randomly run around. They wander around aimlessly, gobbling occasionally. Turkeys will follow any player holding melon seeds.

Taming Edit

Turkeys can be tamed by feeding them melon seeds. After right-clicking on a turkey with the melon seeds, the naming screen will appear. If you wish to rename a tamed turkey, use a medallion, book or a name tag.

Turkeys can be healed by feeding them pumpkin seeds or with a splash potion of Healing or Regeneration. They can also be leashed. Turkeys cannot be bred, despite having separate genders.
