This Minecraft tutorial explains how to craft a feather with screenshots and step-by-step instructions.

In Minecraft, a feather is an item that you can not make with a crafting table or furnace. Instead, you need to find and gather this item in the game.

Let’s explore how to add a feather to your inventory.

Where to find a Feather in Creative Mode

Minecraft Java Edition (PC/Mac)

Here is where you can find a feather in the Creative Inventory menu:

Platform Version(s) Creative Menu Location
Java Edition (PC/Mac) 1.8 – 1.11
Java Edition (PC/Mac) 1.12 – 1.19
Java Edition (PC/Mac) 1.19.3
  • Platform is the platform that applies.
  • Version(s) is the Minecraft version numbers where the item can be found in the menu location listed (we have tested and confirmed this version number).
  • Creative Menu Location is the location of the item in the Creative Inventory menu.

How to get a Feather in Survival Mode

You can add a feather to your inventory in Survival mode by killing a chicken. So let’s get started!

1. Find a Chicken

You first need to find a chicken. Chickens are very easy to find and can be found in most Overworld biomes on land.

2. Attack and Kill the Chicken

Once you find a chicken, you need to attack it. When you attack the chicken, it will turn pink as it takes damage.

Continue to chase and attack the chicken. Once you have killed the chicken, it will drop raw chicken, and (if you are lucky) a feather.

3. Pick up the Feather

Make sure you pick up the raw chicken and feather before it disappears.

These are both useful items and should be kept in your inventory to be used later.

Item ID and Name

Minecraft Java Edition (PC/Mac)

In Minecraft, a feather has the following Name, ID and DataValue:

(Minecraft ID Name)
ID Data Value Stack Size Version
288 0 64 1.8 – 1.12
288 64 1.13 – 1.19.3
  • Description is what the item is called and (Minecraft ID Name) is the string value that is used in game commands.
  • Minecraft ID is the Internal number for the item.
  • Data Value (or damage value) identifies the variation of the block if more than one type exists for the Minecraft ID.
  • Stack Size is the maximum stack size for this item. While some items in Minecraft are stackable up to 64, other items can only be stacked up to 16 or 1. (NOTE: These stack sizes are for vanilla Minecraft only. If you are running a mod, some mods may change the stack size for an item.)
  • Platform is the platform that applies.
  • Version(s) is the Minecraft version numbers that the Minecraft ID and Name are valid for.
