I'm curious to know how people get mob sorters which filter out different types of passive mobs like cows, sheep, pigs and chickens.
I know they have different sizes but won't the smaller mobs like pigs go into a tube made for cows?
I have seen some videos on Youtube but they just show the sorter, not really explaining it, I would watch the longer ones but sadly I'm out of internet usage.
Any help would be appreciated ^^

PIGS: 1x1x2 blocks in size
CHICKEN: 1x1x1 block in size
WOLVES: 1x1x1.8 blocks in size PROTIP2: wolves fit inbetween ladders, unlike pigs.
COWS/SHEEP: 2x1x2 blocks in size
wait..COWS AND SHEEP ARE TWO BLOCKS HIGH?!??!?!

If i recall etho goes over each step in passive sorting.
Yeah but as I said...i'm out of usage and 41 minutes is quite long.

Sorry didn't notice that bit in your original post.
First sort chickens:
Drop mobs over a pit with a water break. Chickens will hit the water and float on top. Make a stream to deliver the chickens somewhere.
Below the water break create another stream to push the remaining mobs toward a 1 wide 2 tall tunnel. In the tunnel leave one block open to a side, and enclose the rest. Make the bottom of the tunnel half blocks, and it will now be 1.5 tall. Sheep and cows will be stuck in the middle lane.
To one side have an exit for the water that flows over the top of the half-blocks and pushes across to the open side. So the water stream will push sheep/cows forward, but it will also push pigs/wolves to the open side. Along that side have a 1 block high opening at the head height of the sheep/cows and the pigs and wolves will be pushed into that open area.
Usually takes about 3-4 open blocks to reliably sort pigs/wolves out from the cows/sheep. After that deposit the cows and sheep where you want.
To separate pigs from wolves use water again to push the pigs and wolves forward and to one side across and opening that has a ladder against a block. 3-4 of these in a row will reliably separate the wolves from the pigs. Route each where you want from there.
