When a villager is killed by a zombie, it turns into a zombie villager. Zombie villagers can spawn with equipment like swords, shovels, and armor. When a villager is killed and turned into a zombie can it have items naturally? I'm currently building a villager grinder, and I want to know if I should build a sorting system for the drops or not. If they don't it's fine, since my plan was to just trade the rotten flesh for emeralds in the first place.
I can't find a definitive statement, but my experience is that villagers do not gain equipment when converted to zombie villagers. (This is similar to how zombies converted to drowned do not gain drowned equipment [tridents].)

WARNING: I have an extemely "grindy" playstyle; YMMV — if this doesn't seem fun to you, mine what you can from it & bin the rest.
