To tame a parrot, here’s what you need to do: 

  • Any kind of seed (Wheat, Melon, Pumpkin, Beat Seeds)
  • Slowly approach a parrot and be careful not to scare it off. 
  • Give the parrot any seed. Whenever you feed a parrot, you have a one-and-three chance of taming it. Continue feeding the parrot until you succeed. 

Note: Red hearts will appear around the parrot once it’s tamed. It will also want to sit on your shoulder.

Taming requires you to feed a creature its favorite food. As for the parrot, you’ll need to offer it some seeds. 

Here’s where you can find seeds in the game: 

  • Wheat Seeds – they can be gathered by breaking tall grass around the grassland biome. Up to three seeds and one wheat can be collected from a wheat crop. 
  • Melon Seed – this can be obtained from a melon slice. Simply put a melon slice in the middle slot of the crafting table and collect the melon seed. 
  • Pumpkin Seed – locate a patch of pre-grown pumpkins. Harvest them and place one on your crafting table. Each pumpkin should create four pumpkin seeds. 
  • Beat Seed – go to a village and find some beetroot crops. Break the beetroot and it should drop some beetroot seeds.

Although they are rare, parrots are not hard to spot once they spawn due to their vibrant colors. 

Here are some tips on how to find a parrot: 

  • Passive mobs including parrots and other creatures will not spawn if there are more than 10 in any currently loaded chunks. Due to this, you’ll need to kill nearby passive mobs for more to spawn. 
  • Clear out any trees in the area and ensure that the grass is well-lit. You can use torches to light the area. 
  • Tall jungle trees might block out sunlight, preventing parrots from spawning. 

Note: Parrots only spawn on lighted grass blocks and are able to fly to other areas.
