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.

If you want a full detailed change list, and not the one Mojang publishes with releases:

New pack, thread is not up to date.

Quote me so I can see your reply, or send me a message.

This feature has been added in 1.7.4 and baby zombies/baby zombie pigmen will now have a chance of spawning riding a chicken.

They are actually less rare than Mojang say in my opinion. I have seen 3 already in 1 world. :)

its a 1 in 400 chance or 200 chance i think can't remember, but it helps if there are chicks near the spawning place it double's the chances of it spawning.

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.

So that seems to be a pretty effective method of filtering chicken jockeys from regular zombies (in creative mode), as they apparently cannot go through Nether portals :)

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. This video shows how to improve your chances of getting one.

Well, that's interesting. I like it, it's nice that Mojang is still putting mindless and hilarious stuff in the game :D
