How to keep animals (Closed)
Dose any one no how to keep animals on minecraft for 360? I make a pen with roof and walls but the disapear after a day or two
Answer from: ZaoMonichi
Eventually, they will despawn, or glitch their way out. You may just have to stay near them. The easiest way to keep they is to make a lengthy pen out of fences, maybe 10x10 in size.

You can also make a trail of wheat leading to your house, corral, etc

Glass pens work really well at glitching animals. I made a 15x10 Glass U-wall by a water source (the fourth wall was a wterfall) to try and make my room appear underwater, it didn't do that, but it trapped all animals there. Also try making a river that runs under your building and make your floor out of glass. That keeps glitching them too. I hope this helps

I built a fence and it was 10 squares away from my house and I had a railway and a rail cart so they never could glitch out because of the railway.

Put a lead of wheat and water near to a pen fence and kill yourself 20 times and you will have 199 animals in your house or garden etc.
