Chicken is a good supply of food source in the early game, even though you can just make a cow or pig farm, chickens are still the best due to their small size and efficiency. Here’s how to Make an Automatic Chicken Farm.

- 3x Glass
- 3x Chest
- 3x Hopper
- 3x Dispenser

How to Make an Automatic Chicken Farm
Step 1: Start The Base
You need an area with at least 3 blocks wide and 6 blocks long. If you’re gonna build the chicken farm on your farm, make sure your roof is at least 5–6 blocks tall.
Start by placing a chest down, facing where you want to collect the chicken meat and feather. Then connect a hopper to the chest, and place the smooth stone slab on top of the hopper.
Step 2: Build the Generator Part
Use a building block and place it behind the hopper. The first chest, the hopper, and the building block should be in a straight line.
Then put two dispensers above the building block. Make sure that the face of the two dispensers is facing the front, which is facing the chest.
Then use another hopper and connect it to the right side of the first hopper.
Next, put a double chest sideway right above the hopper. The double chest should face to the right.
Finally, put another hopper right behind the second dispenser and connect it to the back of the double chest.
Step 3: Do Redstone Magic
Place 2 building blocks under the double chest, with one block sticking out to the back of the double chest.
Next, you need to place a Redstone comparator facing the back of the build, next to it is a Repeater.
Then build another building block behind the repeater, and another building blocks diagonally to it on the ground.
And finally place a comparator on top of that building block, facing to the left. This time, you must click on the comparator until it’s lit red.
Place 4 more building blocks like this. One is just right behind the comparator and three are on the floor.
Jump up the platform and place a repeat facing into the dispenser. Finish this by placing two Redstone dust on the building block platform.
After this step, you should be running out of Redstone, repeaters, and comparators.
Step 4: Finish off the Automatic Chicken Farm
First, you need to place the bucket of lava into the upper dispenser. This will work like a killing chamber.
Next, place 6x building blocks on the ground with 3 blocks on each side like this.
For the next two layers, the pattern is the same. You will need another 10 building blocks and two glasses.
Then jump up the top hopper, and make a two-block high wall of building blocks. This will be the room for the chickens. You will need 16x building blocks.
Almost there, place a glass block just right above the upper dispenser.
Remember the 2 blocks high room above? You can start bringing the chickens in there by either throwing eggs or manually using seeds to lure the chickens.
When you have around 20 chickens, place a trapdoor above the room to protect them.
Voila! Congratulation on your automatic chicken farm! Now you just need to AFK or do other things like mining and wait for the chicken meat to fill up the chest.
