Genetic Animals mod for minecraft


  • It adds better looking models that still give the Minecraft feel but are also dynamic and can change from animal to animal and even over time.
  • It adds hunger mechanics so that your starving animals can no longer provide resources, Animals wont give birth if starving, their milk will run dry, they stop laying and stop growing wool without food, ect.
  • On the plus side your animals can eat a lot of different things and can graze on grass and hay blocks once the binding is cut, pigs can even feed on stuff they find in the dirt and turn the soil up into farmland for you.
  • Most importantly this mod adds real genetics, if you breed two animals together their offspring are a product of their parent’s genes and each animal’s variations in size, colour, shape, meat drops, leather drops, egg colours, wool production, milk production and more are determined by their genes rather than random chance.

In short this mod makes the animals as realistic as possible without making them out of place in minecraft.


Assorted Wild chickens! They love all seeds (which is still how you breed them) but they will also eat berries, grass, wheat, dandelions, bread, and tasty spider’s eye. Chickens unlike the other animals only hatch from eggs. Baby chicks will grow up after two and a half days if fed well.

This is a flock of wild sheep gathered up from the plains, as you can see sheep can be polled(no horns), horned, or even have multiple horns. They can also be dyed like normal sheep but black sheep only become tinted colors and so only drop black wool even when dyed. Sheep make up to a whole bucket of milk per day. Sheep love to eat hay and wheat, but also like grass, vines, pumpkin, melon, carrots, roses, dandelions, apples, and sugar. After two days of pregnancy Sheep usually have one to three lambs at a time which drink the milk the sheep makes. Lambs will grow up after three days if they are fed well.

These are some rabbits enjoying some hay which helps to keep the grass green. The angora rabbit can be sheared for white wool if it has enough food to eat and smaller rabbits make less meat. Rabbits love to eat dandelions and carrots but also like grass, roses and berries. Rabbits take just one day to gestate and they can have from one to twelve kits depending on the mother’s size! Kits take two days to grow into adults like their parents.

This is a pair of wild pigs, pigs unlike the other livestock animals pigs are neutral and will attack you if you attack first, half of all pigs have tusks which will give them higher attack so be careful. They also are much rougher on the pasture than your other animals and will turn up the dirt looking for food, its very messy but makes for great farmland. Pigs love carrots, beetroot and potato but they also like cooked meats and fish, grass, melon, pumpkin, hay, wheat, apples, brown mushrooms, oak and dark oak saplings, bread, and whole buckets of milk, they will even eat rotten flesh. Pigs take just two days to have piglets and they can give birth to as many as 14! Piglets will become adults after two and a half days.

Llamas come in lots of colours, sizes, and even have different face shapes! Some llamas even have long wool that can be sheared. Lamas can be bred for better stats in attacking and carrying items, llamas benefit from hybrid vigor in the case of stats. To equip llamas with chests and breed them you have to tame them first, in the future this system will be a bit different. Llamas love hay only, but they also eat wheat, carrots, sugarcane, beetroot, and grass. Lamas are pregnant for two days and take five whole days to grow to an adult if well fed.

This is a herd of interesting cows that have been gathered together, as you can see they come in a wide range of sizes and can also be dwarf. They have lots of colours and its rare to see matching spots. Cows are usually horned but can also be polled (hornless). The bigger the cow the more meat or leather they drop and the more milk they can make, however the thinner bodied cows make the most milk and the fatter looking cows make more meat. Some cows will drop more leather and less meat and visa versa. A top milk producing cow can make five buckets of milk. Cows love hay and wheat, but they also like melons, pumpkins, grasses, oak leaves, vines, carrots, apples, and sugar. Cows are pregnant for two days and their calf grows up in three and a half days.

Mooshrooms are exactly like cows only they are infected by either red or brown mushrooms! Mooshrooms also have the ability to graze on mycelium and mushrooms. When struck by lightning mooshrooms can change from red to brown and from brown to red. Brown mooshrooms can be milked for suspicious stew if they have been fed flowers and otherwise make mushroom soup like the red mooshrooms. Mooshrooms can make 2 bowls of soup or stew for every bucket of milk they can make.
