Smallbird is a mob that is a child version of Tallbirds. One can be obtained by hatching a Tallbird Egg. A Smallbird will further grow into Smallish Tallbird in 10 full days. They are considered innocent creatures and killing one adds 6 points to the player's naughtiness level, which can cause Krampus to appear.
Smallbirds are fragile and will die with a single strike. If Ctrl is pressed as well as hovering the mouse above a Smallbird, the player can attack it. They will trigger and die from Bee Mines and Tooth Traps.
Smallbirds require 20 calories per day and will demand food by chirping when hungry ( < 50%), and when starving ( = 0) will die in 4 game hours. They can be fed Berries (raw only) and Seeds (raw, toasted and Crop Seeds) and they will also eat seeds off the ground if they are Hungry. Eating anything heals them to full health.
Smallbirds will follow the player around, regardless of nearby danger. It is possible to pen a smallbird to prevent it from following the player, but it will not eat until the player is nearby. Smallbirds fall asleep at night.
Smallbirds will attack the player's targets, though they are weak and will need protection from any attacks made by hostile mobs. Gobblers, Birds, Rabbits are not scared away by Smallbirds. Issuing an attack order on those mobs then backing off will send Smallbirds to easily peck them to death.
When the player dies and gets revived (by any means), Smallbirds will no longer follow the player. They will just walk around until they die from starvation, get killed by other mobs, or grow into Smallish Tallbirds.
Since a Smallbird hops as movement, it can jump over 1 level high walls.
- If a Smallbird steps on a chest with a tooth trap in it, there is a chance it will die from the toothtrap even though it is in the Chest.[needs verification]
- If you attack animal with a Boomerang and don't catch it on its return the Boomerang will damage you causing the Smallbird to attack.[needs verification]
