Seeds are an item used in farming.
Seeds can be obtained from breaking grass, which yields 0 to 1 seed.
Harvesting fully-grown wheat yields from 0 to 3 seeds per tile harvested (about 1.5 seeds/tile harvested on average).
Seeds can be placed in farmland by right-clicking, where they will grow through eight stages. When left alone, seeds planted on farmland will grow to become wheat, which can be harvested by the player. Planted seeds need at least light level 9 in the block above them to grow, or must be exposed to the sky.
Breaking the final stage produces 0 to 3 seeds and 1 wheat. If they are harvested early, they will drop seeds without wheat. The more developed crops are, the more seeds they are likely to drop.
Seeds are used to breed chickens. When two chickens are each fed seeds, they enter "love mode." If a chicken in "love mode" finds another chicken in "love mode," the two chickens will "kiss" for a few seconds, then a smaller chicken will appear, which will earn you experience points. After the baby is spawned, it will follow the adult chickens until it too is in its adult form, unless you hit the baby. You can feed the baby more seeds to make it grow up faster, where each time you feed it 10% is taken off the remaining time.
