To breed sheep, hold wheat and hold it on two adult sheep until they have hearts coming from them. Then they will go to each other and kind of glitch into the other and a baby sheep will come out from them.

You can't breed them yet, I tried but instead of "love mode" it went on to hitting them. Even with wheat you can't do it.

On January 30, 0.6.0 will come out, and you can breed animals then, by letting them do it themselves.

Guest said: 26th May 2013 | REPORT
I know right! I built a tunnel from one end of the world to the other I took me about three days ( in real life not on mindcraft ) to build it and I tried to herd one animal at a time and whenever they got stuck I clicked on them and they died when we were about half way to my house!!!
Guest said: 9th Mar 2014 | REPORT
walk towards them from behind, that'll force them onwards, and make sure it's a one block wide tunnle.

You cannot breed on minecraft pe. On PC version you "feed" them wheat (right clicking on animal with wheat) will put them into love mode, and if you "feed" an animal of the same species wheat it will make the animals join together and POOF a baby will appear. (say you had put a cow into love mode you need to put another cow into love mode.)However this does not work on pocket edition and if you try it you will just punch the animal with wheat. However in the pe 0.6.0 update baby animals spawn randomly in survival mode.

To breed chickens in pe just hold the egg icon down at bottom until it pops out. Leave it for a few minecraft days and there is a 1/8 chance it will hatch. In the new update u can tame cows with wheat. Chickens also naturally lay eggs and they may hatch. Hope that helps Smile
Guest said: 20th Mar 2014 | REPORT
You can also mine with a egg. It will break and you will get a baby chicken!!!Smile

You use seeds on chickens, you hold it on 2 chickens (hearts should pop out) and they will produce a baby. Only works on 0.8.0

Guest answered:

Correct sir. This was added in 0.8.0. Animals are now breedable. Question closed.
Guest answered:
Added 16th Dec 2013, ID #610874

This can't happen you can't breed them well at least in 0.8.0 witch is the one I have now you can either spawn new ones or go out and do d other animals. There is only one thing you can spawn that's with chickens get the eggs that they have dropped then spawn them. I must tell you it does not always work.

Guest answered:

You can breed animals in minecraft pocket edition. You tap and hold a cow or a sheep with wheat and hearts appear. Wheat seeds with chickens and carrots with pigs.

Guest answered:
Added 20th Dec 2013, ID #611264

There is a new version right now which you CAN breed animals in. Just tap and hold a cow or sheep with wheat and it should work, wheat seeds for chicken and carrots for pigs, I haven't tried it myself yet but the new version allows you to breed. Hope I helped ^-^


Guest answered:

On iPad you can after 0.8.1 version update just hold wheat on cows,sheep,and pigs until there are floating hearts and do it on two animals.On chickens do the same but do it with seeds.
