It's possible they will only spawn in certain chunks. I suggest using the same seed in creative and placing a few grass block islands in different locations and see if any animals spawn. If they don't then my theory blows.

The islands are technically an ocean biome, and animals won't spawn there. It's impossible for animals to spawn in an ocean biome, so you won't ever have any animals. If you need wool for a bed, get string from spiders and craft it into wool.
