Minecraft is a game widely known for not explaining all its mechanics to the player. Sometimes it can be interesting, but sometimes it can be a little frustrating. Today let's talk about one of those mechanics: how to get and hatch turtle eggs in minecraft .

How to get turtle eggs?

Turtles in the real world have a peculiar behavior. When it comes time to spawn, they have to find a beach and some sea turtles search for the same beach where they hatched to lay their eggs.



In Minecraft, turtles have the same behavior. Turtles appear on the beach , in sand blocks which have a light level above 8 and which are close to sea level. That is, the turtles appear only during the day and on the beaches, where you could even get to the heart of the sea. You have to be vigilant!

When a turtle appears, will remember the block in which it appeared and, at the time of lay eggs , will lay them on same beach . That's why turtles are one of the hardest animals to breed, and it's even more difficult to run a turtle farm, as opposed to building a fisherman's farm, which is very simple.

However, difficult is not impossible and many players have turtle farms on beaches and islands and use them to obtain a very valuable item: scales.

With turtle scales you can make a turtle shell, a very precious object. The shells can be used as helmets and effectively protect you like an iron helmet. Also, while using the turtle shell you will have the effect of breathing underwater and you will be able to hold your breath for another 10 seconds or so.

Turtles have many enemies in their first few days of life, so you will have to protect the beach from enemies. A farm project should have a wall in the sea that allows adult turtles to get out, but not baby turtles, and a fence that covers the entire beach to prevent land monsters from reaching the turtles.

If the turtle eggs disappear or appear broken, most likely a zombie has broken them. THE baby turtles are attacked from all varieties of zombies, all varieties of skeletons, cats, foxes, ocelots and Lobos.


Whether you want to cultivate or not, it is vital to protect the eggs from turtle, especially at night; otherwise it will be very difficult to open up.
