Light Level 7

First Appearance

Update 0.11.0

Chicken Jockeys are very rare Mobs that appear as a Baby Zombie or a Baby Zombie Pigman riding a Chicken. They were added in Update 0.11.0.


Any spawned Zombie has a 0.25% chance of becoming a Chicken Jockey; if Chickens are present, the chance increases to 0.4875%.


Chicken Jockeys consist of two separate entities, which exhibit their own unique behavior.


Chicken Jockeys can easily be killed using a Sword.


  • Chicken Jockeys are the second 'jockey' mob to be added to MCPE, after Spider Jockey.
  • Chicken Jockeys will not lay Eggs.
  • Chicken Jockeys will not take damage nor die from falling because Chickens don't take fall damage.
    • They won't burn in the Sun, since neither entity is vulnerable to it.
  • The Jockey will remain intact while riding a Boat.
    • However, if the Jockey enters water without a Boat, the Baby Zombie will jump off.
    • Killing the baby Zombie will result in a passive Chicken, since its Baby Zombie rider was the only hostile portion.
    • Killing the Chicken, on the other hand, will leave the hostile Baby Zombie.
  • When the difficulty is set on Peaceful, the Baby Zombie will de-spawn, but the Chicken will stay.
