By right clicking on the sheep while holding their favorite snack, you are able to breed them in Minecraft. You will realize that you are on the right track when you see the floating love hearts appear above them. For those who want to create offspring, you have to feed two of the same species that are standing close together.
For your information, Minecraft sheep does not have any sex determination, meaning any two will do. These creatures will quickly find each other and do something like kissing. After a while, a baby or an infant will show up, taking 20 minutes of real time to reach maturity.
When two that have compatible colors bred together, they can make a different colored baby sheep. For example, if you want to make an orange baby sheep, you need to breed 2 adult sheep that were dyed with red dye and yellow dye. If you are eyeing a purple baby sheep, you need to breed 2 adult sheep that were dyed with red dye and blue dye. Feel free to experience dying your sheep and breeding all sorts of different colors, but you need to use compatible colors to breed different colored sheep.
Here is the Minecraft sheep breeding color guide for those who want to breed sheep in Minecraft:
- Lapis Lazuli + Cactus Green = Cyan

In Minecraft, sheep naturally spawn with wool colored white, black, gray, light gray, brown and rarely pink. Most of them have white coats. The natural colors of the sheep include:
- White (81.836%)
- Black (5%)
- Gray (5%)
- Light gray (5%)
- Brown (3%)
- Pink (0.164%)
Even though the use of dyes, you probably want to change the coat of the sheep to any dye color such as white, black, gray, light gray, brown, pink, red, orange, yellow, lime green, cactus green, light blue, cyan, blue, magenta, and purple. Breeding two sheep with dyed wool produces an offspring of the same color. If the parents of the sheep are different colors, the color of the offspring is randomly chosen as one of the coloring of the parent, although some combinations produce a new color. For your information, dyed wool is used to make colored carpet, so you can use sheep breeding to generate as much as you need without having to source more dye. Aside from that, it is also possible to dye leather armor and hardened clay, a useful blast-resistant building material made from clay blocks.
