Nether Wart is very useful when it comes to potions, as you need it to brew Potions other than Potions of Weakness from scratch. Nether Wart is only found in Nether Fortresses and in some Nether Staircases on its sides. This resource can also be used to breed Chickens. You can only break them in survival though.
Nether Wart is critical for the brewing of the Awkward Potion, which is used in the base of almost all potions.
As Nether Wart is a type of seed (the others being Melon Seeds, Pumpkin Seeds, and Seeds, Chickens will eat Nether Wart when right clicked with it in your hand. However, the Chickens won't chase you when you hold the Nether Wart.
