What Does a Rainbow Sheep Do in Minecraft?

Unfortunately, rainbow wool doesn’t exist in the game. The primary attraction is the visual delight of having a rainbow-colored sheep. Some additional points to note:

  • No Special Effects: Beyond appearance, rainbow sheep do not offer any practical advantages.
  • Wool Color: The wool you shear from the rainbow sheep will retain the color it had before being named “Jeb.”
  • Breeding: If you breed two rainbow sheep, the newborn sheep’s color will be influenced by the base colors of its parents. You can change the newborn’s color with dye or name it “Jeb_” to maintain the rainbow effect.
  • Dyeing the Sheep: You can still dye the rainbow sheep with any color, and it will drop the dyed wool when sheared.
