How to breed villagers in Minecraft

Interested in making your favorite Minecraft village larger? The only way to do this (without cheats) is to make your villagers start breeding. That helps you build out a village and can eventually lead to more trading opportunities and other advantages.

However, breeding Minecraft villagers isn’t always easy. Circumstances need to be just right, which means you have some work to do if you really want to expand a particular village. Here’s everything you need to encourage villager romance and get some families started.

How to breed villagers

Step 1: Find your village of choice. Ideally, it will already have a few villagers around, but that’s not necessary if you are willing to boat or cart in villagers from other locations. Most importantly, it should be monster-free, since empty villages can often contain pillagers, zombies, or other enemies.

Step 2: Make sure you have at least two villagers. Again, you can boat or cart them into the village if you have to.

Step 3: Move your villagers close together. They really need to be in the same building to breed. This isn’t always easy, because villagers don’t always naturally cohabitate. You can simply move two of them close and then build a building around them if you want, or find an existing structure with enough room in it and move your villagers into it.

Step 4: Start making some beds. We have a whole guide on how to do it! The key for breeding villagers is to create enough beds for every villager plus one. Villagers generally won’t breed unless there is an extra bed available for the child. Place the beds, including the extra one, near your villagers.

Step 5: If possible, trade with your villagers to make sure they are active and functioning properly. Now, you’ll need to get them in the mood. Villagers have a specific mating mode they go into, and one of the best ways to encourage it is to give them food — a fair amount of food, too. You must feed each villager in your couple one of the following:

  • 3 bread

  • 12 carrots

  • 12 potatoes

  • 12 beetroots

Lob the food into your villagers once you have collected enough. Eventually, hearts will start to appear over the villagers. That means you did everything right.

Step 6: Wait for the villagers to spawn a baby. You can, uhh, stay and watch if you want — this usually only takes a few minutes at the most once the heart icons start appearing, but you can also go off and explore for a little bit if you want. A child villager will eventually pop into existence next to the two villagers.

Step 7: The child villager will grow up in about half an hour or so … but that’s just one new villager. If you really want to build out your village, you should absolutely create a farm. Pair up a jobless villager with a composter, and they should turn to farming all by themselves. Farmers will automatically supply nearby villagers with their own food, which means you don’t have to keep feeding villagers yourself to get them to breed.

Step 8: Expand your village by continuing to build structures and add extra beds so there’s always at least one spare bed. Before long, you will find your village populating itself. From here, the sky is the limit: You can create a whole city if you want, as long as you keep everything accessible to your villagers.

How to Kick Out Villagers in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Is there anything worse than dealing with an annoying villager in Animal Crossing: New Horizons? Well, maybe there is, but perhaps you’re thinking about kicking one of them off your island. Sometimes the little nickname they have for you might rub you the wrong way, and you just can’t stand it anymore. How exactly do you go about removing them?

As of right now, there isn’t a quick and easy method that 100% guarantees a villager will be dismissed from your island. In fact, whether a villager is thinking of moving out appears to be somewhat random. Many players have their own theories that supposedly work, but there are a lot out there that are flat-out wrong. For instance, some have claimed that bonking a villager on the head with a net will cause them to get mad at you, leading to them requesting to move. Others have stated that complaining to Isabelle in Residential Services might cause a villager to leave. Both of these are untrue. However, there are a couple of methods that seem to work.

You’ll know a villager is ready to move out when they have a cloud above their head. After talking to them, they’ll tell you they’ve been thinking of moving out, and if you agree, they’ll be off the island in a couple of days. To speed this process along, try one of the following methods.

Avoid them

Your villagers can often be found walking around the island. In normal circumstances, you’d probably be inclined to walk up to them to strike up a conversation. However, if you want a villager to move out, do not interact with them. Try to avoid starting conversations, and even keep your distance from them. Talk to the other villagers instead. Some players will build a fence around the villager’s home to keep them trapped so you won’t accidentally run into them.

What’s odd is that some villagers might request to move even if you talk to them every day. That’s why many players believe it’s random. Either way, you will eventually be prompted to kick a villager out if you ignore them.

Amiibo cards

The other method expects you to have the Animal Crossing amiibo cards. These cards can be located online and are included in blind packs. Or, you can obtain specific cards from dealers on eBay. A viable option is to use an amiibo card to substitute a character on your island. To do this, navigate over to Residential Services and interact with the device. Choose the Amiibo option and request whichever card you have. However, you need to check and make sure that it’s a villager and not a worker like Tom Nook or Isabelle.

Once selected, they’ll then take a trip to visit your city as a camper. Satisfy all their needs and requests, and keep nudging them to move in. At some point, they’ll accept and will move in the following day, as long as you have additional openings free. Keep in mind that you can only have ten villagers living on your island at a time, so choose wisely. 

Of course, if your island has reached maximum capacity, you’ll be urged to replace a villager with the person requested from the amiibo card. The good news is that you get to pick which villager they substitute by bargaining with them. You’ll notice a list of your villagers pop up, letting you then decide which one to give the boot. This technique also works well with random campers, but the disadvantage is that you’ll have to wait for these people to arrive. With amiibo cards, you can bring in particular villagers at your own leisure.
