for some reason i like the golden chicken idea. it could be like a chicken has a 1 in 1000 chance of laying a golden egg and then you have to hatch it (same probability of hatching a normal egg) and you get a golden chicken, those would only lay golden eggs, but not as often as chickens lay normal eggs.
That's actually a pretty good idea, I was going to do the golden chicken and the golden egg stuff but I never thought about the regular chicken laying the golden egg.
I am going to do that.
if you need a texture for the golden chicken i made something really quick:
also an idea of why you would want to farm these is them dropping golden feathers and you use that together with the blaze rod and flint to make a flaming arrow.
gold egg and feather:
flaming arrow recepie:
again, just ideas. it's your choice to use them or not
I am going to have the chicken lay a golden egg about as commonly as a normal chicken, but when you throw the egg it will have a 5% chance to spawn a golden chicken, a 50% chance to drop a gold nugget a 10% chance to drop a gold ingot and a 0.5% chance to drop a gold block. Plus maybe add some gold tools in just for fun.
I could do the fire arrow, I like the idea but I don't think that is my first priority (seeing as how it will take a long time to make)
