This is unrelated to the dodo and or taming it. I just wanted to find the closest to relevant place to post some advice for raising eggs. When I'm between periods of incubation, store eggs immediately, otherwise a Dino can eat if from your inventory while you're running around. Once I was raising an argy egg when it got too hot so I picked it up till nightfall hit. This egg was at 3% incubation with merely minutes left and I went out to get meat for the Newley hatched baby as it was close to being born when a little birdy swooped by and ate it from my inventory, costing me nearly 3 hours of time, and causing me to wait for the parents to be able to mate again. Sorry for the inconvenient location of this tip.
From what I have heard you can breed dodos to be so big you can ride without saddle, or you can breed so small it can sit on your shoulder. Working on breeding them big. To breed small/big then just breed your biggest/smallest dodos together. Hope this helps. if helpful 👆, if unhelpful 👇
One time I was new to ark and ko one and tamed it We had fun adventures on our very very small island then I swam with him to the mainland and a rex turned to kill me... my dodo ran out I tried to save him but I was knocked back to my island by the Rex's knockback and he got the rex away... a few 30 secs later I got a death message R.I.P Doooodoooo was his name
