Blocks, Items and Crafting Recipes

Bird Meat

Bird Meat is dropped by all of the birds. Just place the raw meat in a furnace to cook yourself some tasty grub!

Book of Birds

This book tells you about all of the birds in game. It includes their picture, the scientific name and a little caption about them. It can be crafted using a normal book and a peacock feather, like so:

Exotic-Birds-Mod-24.png

Eggs

Eggs can be found in two ways: collected from nests, or laid by birds. All eggs have a 10% chance of spawning a chick when thrown. This can be increased up to 50% by crafting the eggs with blaze powder, adding 20% each time. Any attempt to increase after 50% will consume the powder, but not increase the chance.

Exotic-Birds-Mod-25.png

There are also unidentifed eggs. These are black with a question mark on them. To indentify these, you must use the egg sorter. See below.

Eggshell

This item will occasionally drop from nests, and also when you throw any of the bird eggs. It can be used like bonemeal to speed up the growth of plants and to grow flowers.

Egg Identifier:

It can be crafted using the following recipe:

Exotic-Birds-Mod-26.png
Exotic-Birds-Mod-27.png

Placing unidentified eggs in the top slot and redstone dust in the bottom will result in the eggs being identified. This is not always successful and may produce eggshells.

Incubator:

The incubator can be crafted using the following recipe:

Exotic-Birds-Mod-28.png
Exotic-Birds-Mod-29.png

Placing eggs in the top slots and blaze powder in the bottom will level up the eggs. This machine allows the spawn rate to go all the way to 100%! It works on multiple eggs too!

Nests:

Probably the most important part of the mod. You will find these nests sitting atop leaves in your world. Breaking them will drop 0-3 different bird eggs and some sticks. Empty nests can be crafted using the following recipe.

Exotic-Birds-Mod-30.png

You may right click on the nests to open the GUI.

Peacock Feather:

Dropped by peacocks, these feathers can be used to craft the Book of Birds.

Phoenix Dust:

This dust is used to create a phoenix egg. It can be found as a rare item in abandoned mineshaft chests. One is dropped by a phoenix upon death.

Phoenix Egg:

Phoenix eggs are used to hatch the mythical phoenix. They require a light level of 9 or above to hatch (a flame particle effect will appear when the light level is suitable). These can be found as a rare item in a monster dungeon, extremely rarely found in nests, or crafted by surrounding a chicken egg in phoenix dust.

Phoenix Feather:

Dropped by a phoenix upon death. This feather does not yet do anything.
