Minecraft is a sandbox video game that offers unlimited creativity and possibility. It becomes extremely popular because it is different from most other games.
Minecraft allows its players to create anything by relying on their imagination and creativity. There are a number of mobs in this video game.
They are moving entities that can hurt or attack. Parrots are also a mob, but they are not considered as hurting or attacking mobs. In fact, parrots are one of the rare mobs that you can find in the jungle biome.
They come in 5 different colors, which are green, red, blue, gray, and cyan. The parrots have a job to imitate the sound of dangerous mobs that get close to a player.

They do not help you to fight against the enemies. The parrots just warn you to get ready to fight them. This mob sits on the player’s shoulder and sometimes it gets annoying.
If you are curious about how to get a parrot off your shoulder in Minecraft, here are some ways that you can try.
Circumstances When Parrots Get Off on Their Own
The parrot will get off your shoulder when you die in the game. Or, if you are riding a horse, you need to get off your house if you want the parrot to get off your shoulder.
It will also get off your shoulder when you are sleeping on the bed or taking damages. The parrot will immediately leave you when you are drowning. When you burn in the lava and you have fire resistance, it will get off your shoulder and burn in the lava.
This rare mob will also leave you when you fail to land on a high block. When you drop off the edge that is higher than ¾ blocks, the parrot will drop off as well.
Commands to Get the Parrot Off Your Shoulder
Besides getting yourself in a situation where a parrot will leave you on their own, you can also use commands to do so. You can use one of these commands: “release shoulders”, “prel”, or “parrot release”.
Use one of these shoulders and press the right button or left button, depends on which shoulder of yours the parrot is sitting on. You can turn the parrot into an egg by using these commands: “pegg” or “parrot eggify”.
Type one of the two commands and press the right or left button, once again depends on which shoulder the parrot sits on. Please make note that you can only do this in town areas.
Why Parrots are not Good Enough
As it is said before, parrots are one of the rare mobs and their main job is to keep you alert of dangerous mobs or enemies. You have to feed different kinds of seeds before you can tame them.
Players can also feed cats or wolves with the same resources. Tamed cats can help you to scare away creepers while tamed wolves are helpful for fighting against enemies.
However, parrots do not help you to fight against or keep away mobs or enemies. They are not as helpful as tamed cats or wolves.
Parrots only warn you if there are enemies who are getting close to you. This keeps you wondering whether there are enemies who will attack you or not. So, this mob is actually not helpful or good enough to always be on your shoulder.
Those are the ways that you can try to get a parrot off your shoulder in Minecraft. If you want to tame this rare mob, you can feed it with beetroot seeds, pumpkin seeds, melon seeds, or wheat seeds.
