I played minecraft when suddenly some flying pigs spawned. They look like small pigs flying on a chicken (they are relatively small so it's hard to see): flying pigs

They fly down in a straight line and then disappear with an "explosion" effect, but no actual blocks are destroyed. When they fall into water, there is a "bubbles" effect instead. Also, they seem to be immune to attacks. This is one immediately before impact: pig detail

I noted that the pigs started to spawn at ~21:00 on 25. December, so maybe it is because of some holiday (presumably christmas)?

  • Its a portalgun config called easter egg – Aaron128l Dec 25 '13 at 21:36

The flying pigs are a part of the portal mod at Christmas. If you want to disable just temporarily change your system day to the 26th.

It is an easter egg that is part of the PotalGun mod. They appear on Christmas day (25 December).

To disable them, edit your minecraft/config/PortalGun.cfg file, find the following section, and change easterEgg to 0 (it is set to 1 by default)

others {
    # Oh wouldn't you like to know?

The effect is client side only, so you only need to edit this on your game client. Then restart your game.
