Diamond chickens were a rare variant of chicken present in the April Fool's Java Edition 2.0 that lays Lapis Lazulis or Diamonds instead of eggs.

Spawn[]

Diamond chickens spawn under normal chicken spawning conditions, but only with 7% chance.

Behavior[]

As chickens were modified in 2.0 to display neutral behavior, diamond chickens are also neutral.

Diamond chickens lay diamonds and lapis lazuli instead of eggs like normal chickens. They also have a 5% chance to explode instead of laying an item.
