To encourage villagers to reproduce, make them happy. Provide them with enough food, build a bed for them, and most importantly, give them some privacy.
Villagers can be raised in different ways.
How to raise villagers in Minecraft Bedrock
Raising villagers in Minecraft Bedrock isn’t much different from doing it in Minecraft Java. To do this, follow the steps below:
- Find or build a village with one or more buildings (only four walls, three blocks high, no roofs, etc. needed). This process forms your new village.
- There should be three times as many beds as there are adult villagers in your village: two for the parents and one for the child. Include two or more empty blocks above them.
- Trade at least once with your villagers. This step may not be necessary, but if the villagers don’t have the “will” to reproduce, this process can help.
- In order for the villagers to be willing to reproduce, make sure they get 14 food points: bread gives 4 points and carrots, potatoes and beets give 1 point. Feed (throw) it to your villagers.
- Leave two villagers alone in a building. In Minecraft Bedrock there are male and female villagers, but it doesn’t matter for playing.
- Check the building in about 20 minutes. A villager should appear and claim the extra bed.
- You can now make the two villagers mate again if you move the child out of the room. Of course, their “will” must exist once again and there is also a “waiting” period.
Minecraft Villager Jobs
Villagers in Minecraft can have different professions, and here is a list of them with their professions:

Keep your villagers happy
The villagers have a gossip system that allows them to share different gossip throughout the village. There are certain conditions that can affect a villager’s mood, so make sure the villagers are not in a negative mood.
It’s really hard for negative villagers to breed with each other. Furthermore, it also affects the amount you can trade with them. Here’s how the gossip system works:
What if my villagers didn’t breed
If your villagers don’t mate at all, remember these following points:
- A villager must be available. Your villagers will breed as long as there are empty beds available in the village.
- Empty beds must have 2 empty blocks above them.
- Villagers can become willing by having 3 bread, 12 carrots, 12 potatoes in a slot in their inventory.
- Immediately after mating they will no longer be willing.
- Make sure you trade with your villagers, at least once.
- Availability is granted the first time a new offer is traded.
- After the first trade, they will become available again with a one in five chance for every trade after the first one.
