Minecraft – Can animals spawn


The new release of Minecraft: PE features baby animals. Will these animals eventually spawn in existing worlds, or will my kids (who have built some rather elaborate structures for the Pocket Edition) have to start over?

It appears to be the case that animals never spawn in older versions of PE; are the baby animals a change to that, or are they just a new thing which could be running around at the beginning of a game?

If their Minecraft PE is 1.6.1 or later, I am 100 percent sure that your kids will just have to wait a bit. (About a month in Minecraft days) and if there are few enough remaining animals, new ones will spawn. Eventually. Some of the new spawns will be babies. This unfortunately will wear off in time though.

I know this because I spent hours fencing all the animals in my world. No more spawned for about 3 (real) months. My brother joined on multiplayer and immediately proceeded to kill all my sheep. I was very angry. After a while I went outside and was logging, when I actually saw a baby sheep spawn out of nowhere. Then a cow and a pig. Then a baby chicken. Etc. I checked this on every site I could find on this topic. 8 out of ten said the same thing. Good luck!
