1. What is the easiest way to get arrows in Minecraft?

Method One: Go outside every morning around dawn.

Not only can you get a few arrows from burnt skeletons, but you can also get some feathers from chickens that happened to die in the night (from wolves, cactus).

Beta 1.7 and earlier: You can also get many feathers from burnt zombies by going out in the early morning.

Method Two: Explore

If you haven’t fully explored at least one map, you’re not doing enough. You should find many chickens on your travels. Kill ALL the chickens! Sometimes they’ll drop more than one feather, meaning you can get a lot of arrows from just a few chickens.

Method Three: Build a chicken farm

This you say you’ve tried, but I’m adding it for completeness anyway. I have a very low maintenance farm. I place a single torch right outside my front door. That way, at night, that is the only place where passive mobs can spawn (it’s the only place with both grass and light). I kill all the cows, chickens, and pigs that spawn right outside my door when I go out every morning at dawn.

Beta 1.9 and later: This should be considerably easier as you can use wheat to breed additional chickens.
