The ChickenShed Mod for Minecraft is a simple mod that, unlike the name suggests, does not place chicken sheds all over the Minecraft universe. It does, however, allow the user to add a setting that makes chickens shed feathers every once in a while. This is a very simplistic "two class" mod that, as previously stated, makes the seemingly useless (other than for food purposes) docile creature more useful to the player by adding an element of shedding feathers to the chickens.
It also ensures the user gets at least one feather from a full grown chicken upon its death, and makes baby chickens drop a single feather if killed.
This mod makes those players who don’t like violence without a cause more accepting of killing chickens because it gives the chickens more purpose.
