I was playing around in creative mode when i had no internet. I placed a dispenser facing right at the nether portal and I connected a 1-tick clock (blinking mechanism) to the dispenser. Then i filled the dispenser full of Zombie spawn eggs.
My plan was to have all those zombies go into the portal and have them all squished in one block in the nether. I also had a lava fountain over the portal. After the spawn eggs was out, I went in the portal, and all those zombies exploded into lava!
On one attempt i left the dispenser to spawn and I did something else. When i came back, i found this Chicken Jockey. I never seen one before. I looked it up and this was actually implemented in 1.7, but they did not mention it in the release logs.
Yep. There real. I saw 2. I only do creative mode in SP (you all know why- especially the creepers) so I used a crap-ton of zombies I spawned and did a few tests. I spawned some more in and behold! A chicken jockey. And another.
You can also have baby villagers riding chickens. I also discovered that baby Zombie Pigmen can ride chickens when a few chickens wandered through my Nether Portal. shows how to improve your chances of getting one.
Rollback Post to RevisionRollBack
As it will be in the future, it was at the birth of Man
There are only four things certain since Social Progress began.
That the Dog returns to his Vomit and the Sow returns to her Mire,
And the burnt Fool's bandaged finger goes wabbling back to the Fire;
And that after this is accomplished, and the brave new world begins
When all men are paid for existing and no man must pay for his sins,
As surely as Water will wet us, as surely as Fire will burn,
The Gods of the Copybook Headings with terror and slaughter return!
