Animals still escape their pens

After I downloaded the newest Minecraft patch the animals are still escaping their pens. What do I have to do in order to keep my animals from escaping? They seem to be glitching out of the pens. How can I prevent this?

Below is a video of how my pens are set up.

  • Where is my minecraft jar file
  • How can I find the location of a given item by looking at the world data?
  • Are the XBLA and PC versions of Minecraft compatible?
  • How do I create villages?
  • I only have the bin folder in my .minecraft folder
  • Fill up furnaces all at once by hopper
  • All types of animals are escaping their pens. The pens are just constructed using fences in a 4×6 block. I’m on Minecraft version 1.6.4. The cow in the video glitched into the solid dirt enclosure.

  • What is (or rather, was) Herobrine?
  • Why can't I mine diamond, gold ore, or redstone ore?
  • Trail of particles from a point to TNT
  • What level does lightning start at in minecraft?
  • What are the Minecraft Easter eggs?
  • Where are my Screenshots?

    This is a bug that still exists in the game. Clearly, I suppose. Point is, your version of Minecraft has nothing to do with it.

    I have seen this problem many times, and it seems to be related to fences and reloading the world after it has been unloaded. One solution to your chicken escapee problem could be to dig a two-deep pit for your animals to live in.

    Don't they look so happy?

    …but there’s a problem. When you replace the fences your animals have glitched into with solid blocks, you have some slight suffocation problems (same bug). So that’s no good without some slight adjustments.

    I tried an old method using water, however, animals are somehow more broken now, and sit at the bottom of the water streams and drown.

    So I tried another approach: I used slabs for the bottom layer of wall instead of dirt blocks. They’ll still keep your animals inside, even if you relog, and with minimal casualties (occasionally, I’d get a few baby pigs suffocate when I relogged, but nowhere near as consistently as without using slabs.

    However, I have found some weird behavior using slabs. You can use any other transparent block, but, since apparently baby pigs are less than a half block tall now, you cannot use slabs. Also, if you wish to contain cows, you will need 2 layers of transparent blocks. I used glowstone in this case.

    I dug out caves two blocks underground underneath the pens and dug underneath the pens to make them fall in. I use doors to access the underground pens. If you want grass for the sheep to grow their wool back either lead the grass down until it starts spreading or use silk touch. Hope it helped.
