How to hatch any of these Dragons, easily*

* Not the Tenebris - you still need to go to The End

For all the long-suffering dragon hunters out there that have gone to incredible trouble facing unbelievable odds, retrieved a dragon egg, only to have it explode or burn up or turn to ice - this is for you. The Incubator. Craft one like this (ingredients are obsidian, one netherite block, glass panes):

Craft recipe for Incubator.

Place it down and interact with it while holding a netherite ingot. It will consume the ingot and the incubator mechanism will spin for around 30 seconds. Place down your eggs, anywhere, as soon as possible. You've got ย 20 seconds of reliable egg-hatching time, so be prepared!

How to grow your own Dragon

Step 3: Put that egg down at night time, above ground.

Step 4: Wait for it to hatch (it will start to wobble when it's almost ready).

Step 5: Tame with Dragon Food. Growth time from baby to adult will be 11-20 minutes depending on size but you can speed up its growth with golden apples.

This dragon isn't especially fast but will achieve its top speed in dry biomes (mountain, desert) and slowest over ocean, jungle, swamp - all that moisture is bad for an electricity dragon! It can't wear armor but can shoot lightning bolts! (Interact with your dragon while riding to shoot a bolt.)

Step 1: Visit a swamp, at night, find yourself a troll.ย 

Step 2: Defeat said troll, hopefully it drops a Draco Malus spawn egg.

Young End Drake.

Step 5: Tame with Golden Carrots. Speed up the growth with Tropical Fish.

This dragon has no wings! But s/he can really jump and glide. Fastest ascending dragon so far. To make them jump higher, look higher when you jump. Heal with tropical fish, cod, salmon, carrots, golden carrots, beef, chicken.

This dragon is a medium-speed flyer, but can only fly in The End (unless you do some trickery with teleportation!). They can be healed with Eyes of Ender, golden apples, end rods, ender pearls, beetroot and beetroot seeds. One very cool feature is, as they are about to descend into the Void, they will fly straight up! Thereby guaranteeing they will never fall into the Void. And neither will you! (If you're riding one at the time!!)

End Dragon.

Step 4: Wait for it to hatch (it will start to wobble when it's almost ready).

Step 5: Tame with netherwart. Wait for it to grow up!

Young Cave Dragon.

This dragon is a bit of a night owl. It doesn't like daylight and won't fly in the day. It likes to sleep during the day, but only if underground. On the positive side this dragon is very fast at night.

Heal with coal, coal blocks, charcoal, flint and netherwart.

If you want a "display" egg. You need to progress to Step 3 and interact with the egg whilst holding a sea lantern or a glowstone block. It will never hatch and you can chop it up and place it wherever you like. One for the collectors!

Step 5: When it hatches, tame your baby dragon with a Dark Oak Sapling.

The Lumberbad also drops these eggs (quite rare though).

If you want a "display" egg. You need to progress to Step 3 and interact with the egg whilst holding a dead bush. It will never hatch and you can chop it up and place it wherever you like. One for the collectors!

This dragon is not much of a flyer. In fact, the smallest one you can't even saddle (you can still armor it, sooooo cute). When flying the bigger ones you might find getting them in the air a bit of a challenge. They'll eventually plummet to the earth anyway, or if you get too high, same thing.

Heal them with saplings, leaves, potatos, carrots, tall grass, beetroot seeds, beetroot, bread, poisonous potatos (they love 'em!), wheat seeds, wheat. Strict vegetarians!

Sand Dragon (aka Sabulo)

Step 5: When it hatches, tame your baby dragon with cooked cactus (green dye).

If you want a "display" egg. You need to progress to Step 3 and interact with the egg whilst holding cooked cactus (green dye). It will never hatch and you can chop it up and place it wherever you like. Another one for the collectors!

The Sabulo is generally a slower dragon, however in Savanna and especially Desert biomes it will be quite speedy!

Young Sand Dragon.

Lava Dragon

WARNING: This is not easy. I'm going to regret this, I know it. But at the end you'll have one of these:

Lava Dragon.

Step 1: Visit a swamp, at night, find yourself a troll, same as for the Sabulo.

Step 2: Defeat said troll, hopefully they drop a lava wyvern spawn egg (or a glacio egg), like this one:

Lava Wyvern spawn egg.

If not, back to Step 1 for you.

Step 3: Buckle up, here's where it gets hard. Get to level 10 or below, if you attempt to place the egg above level 10 it will instantly dissolve into lava. Wait until midnight, if you attempt to place the egg when it's not (around) midnight, guess what? It will instantly dissolve into lava. Once it's midnight (use those generally-useless Minecraft clocks), and you're below y level 10, place it down:

Lava Wyvern spawn egg at midnight.

Note the clock position - that's midnight

Step 4: Set fire to the block it's resting on and immediately put the fire out or your egg will burn up. It doesn't need much flame to wake it up.

Lava Wyvern spawn egg in fire.

Step 5: Wait.

Step 6: Wait more, maybe until morning, maybe until the next night. Patience is the key here.

Step 7: It will hatch! And you'll have one of these:

Young Lava Wyvern.

Your heart will surely melt

Step 8: Tame it, tame it, tame it! With cod.

Young Lava Dragon in overworld.

Step 9: Wait for it to grow up. It will take a long time, but you will see it getting bigger over time. And it will look super cute following you everywhere. It will grow to one of three sizes, the biggest size taking the longest.

Step 10: Saddle it, armor it (you need netherite dragon armor, make it with a 2x2 netherite ingot recipe). Fly it around! You should be proud of yourself.

If you want a "display" egg. You need to progress to Step 3 and bucket it with water. It will never hatch and you can chop it up and place it wherever you like. One for the collectors!

Ice Dragon

NO WARNING: This is much easier than the Lava Dragon.

Repeat step 1 above (defeat a troll in a swamp, get a spawn egg).

Ice Dragon spawn egg.

Then, go to a cold or frozen biome, ascend to 90 blocks or higher, and place that egg down. Easy! When it starts to wobble it will hatch shortly. Note extreme hills are not a cold or frozen biome. I know right, there's snow! Seems cold to me too. Frozen ocean or ice plains are probably the easiest to find.

Tame that baby dragon with tropical fish! You have to wait for the dragon to be fully grown before you can saddle or armor them. Hold a saddle or armor and right-click the dragon (or long-press if you're on mobile) to saddle or armor them.

Young Ice Dragon.

Don't tell me you don't want one...

If you want a "display" egg. You need to put down a spawn egg as above ('y' > 90) and bucket it with lava. It will never hatch and you can chop it up and place it wherever you like. One for the collectors!

Ice Dragon.

Dragon Food

Some dragons can be tamed with Dragon Food, which can be made like this (glow lichen and cod):

Craft recipe for Dragon Food.

You can heal all dragons with this stuff. You can speed up the growth of this dragon with golden apples (ouch). Hydra dragons have the highest potential health (up to 250) and are fast over oceans. They'll sleep at night too, if you don't disturb them.
