|Drops:||Raw mutton, wool (depending on the color of sheep)|
Sheep are commonly found passive mobs that spawn on lighted dirt/grass blocks.
Sheep spawn on grass blocks in the Overworld. They can spawn with wool of a variety of colors, most commonly white, however also black, gray, light gray, brown and most rarely, pink.
The sheep drops raw mutton upon death, or cooked mutton if it dies while on fire. It also drops wool if it still has its coat.
When sheared with shears, the sheep drops 1-4 wool. This is usually gives more wool than killing the sheep, and also has the advantage of the sheep being able to regrow it later to be sheared again.
Like all passive mobs, if hit, the sheep will attempt to escape from the player for a short period of time.
When a sheep loses its wool (primarily by means of shears), it will eventually eat a grass block (turning it into dirt) in order to regrow its coat. This allows it to be sheared again.
