Not sure if people are on here, and not sure if it's been answered but my 9 villagers are not breeding they have plenty of crops and food (Some not harvested) and I've traded with them I also have 64+ doors so I don't know why they aren't breeding. The top of my doors are 3 blocks below where the villagers are

Any help appreciated

  • In 1.13 and before you need a different amount of fully skylighted block in front and behind the door. In 1.14 it's much more complicated. I recommend watching tutorials on villager breeders, at least the explanation part. – Fabian Röling Apr 17 '19 at 10:54

The issue seems to be you have too many doors without sufficient space "in front of the door/inside the house" and "behind the door/outside the house" for each of the doors in the underground area. None of these are really considered a house for villare breeding purposes.

As @fabian indicates, the mechanics of villager breeding is more complicated than placing a sufficient number of doors. What you need to accomplish is to trick minecraft into thinking you have created a village. Only then will the villagers start breeding.

Here is a link that may help you: https://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Villager#Breeding. There are also a number of videos online that will explain how to create a working villager breeder.
