History[edit | edit source]

Indev
February 19, 2010 Oldfeather.png Added feathers. They can be used to craft arrows.
They dropped from zombies.
? Feather.png Texture changed.
Beta
1.8 Zombies drop rotten flesh instead of feathers. Now, chickens are the only source of feathers. The reason that zombies used to drop feathers is that they were used as a placeholder (before chickens were implemented in the game). It stayed this way because Notch did not know what exactly zombies would drop.
