hey there i just recently came back to minecraft, i started a game where spawn was a small island with no animals and one tree, fine i set about making a wheat farm but after coming back up from digging in a cave i noticed there was 1 cow and 1 chicken on my island i was perplexed theres no way i missed them on this island i ignored them and carried on, next time i came back up there was also 1 pig there too ignored it and carried on.
i came up to the surface again just now to do some building and theres now 5 horses on this island too!
this is a local only game so theres noone else that can be spawning them and as far as i know passive mobs dont spawn naturally like that
anyone have any comments? i am really quite confused
Edit: i had previously killed the pig and chicken for food and now there are back plus sheep!
