More Dodo Utility Tips
You can get prime meat from the babies, but it spoils very quick, so this is how to get it all to a predator:
1. Incubate lots of dodo eggs so they only have one or two seconds left to hatch.
2. Carry the dodo eggs as well as a campfire (you might need two) and fuel.
3. When you’ve knocked out the predator you want, light the fire and hatch some of the dodo eggs.
4. Kill the babies and harvest their meat with a metal pick.
5. Feed the meat to the predator and enjoy!
I’ve experimented, and it looks like you get two to six prime per dodo.

On mobile these can be bred to get insane sizes, like huge, bigger than an Allosaurus and they have 8 abilities unlocked at certain sizes. I only know 2 abilities, one is the dodo gains an immense amount of speed and charges towards the target. The other that I know of is that it jumps up and slams into the ground which stuns surrounding enemies. Do not underestimate the potential that these have on mobile, they can become beasts.
I recommend breeding these guys for size as soon as possible. They unlock cool new abilities as they get bigger!
Size 1.55: now drops dodo feathers off its back, used for crafting items like sail plume, dodo decimater, and dodo cultivator
Size 3.00: you can now ride them without saddles, and equip dodo decimater and dodo cultivator.
How to breed for size:
Select biggest male and biggest female dodo
Build a 1x1 pen (doesn’t need roof)
Put the dodos in the pen
Enable wandering on both dodos (tap skull icon in top left corner)
Pick up fertile dodo egg
Make campfires (at least 2)
Fuel campfires (at least 20 fuel per fire)
Drop egg next to (not on) campfires
Wait for egg to hatch
Claim baby (skull Icon)
Feed baby (they eat a lot)
Wait for baby to grow up
The new dodo will be anywhere in between his parents sizes, most likely on the edge, with slight variation (size 1.00 and size 1.50 would have a baby of size range 0.95-1.55, most likely bigger than both parents)

Mating bar: at 100%, a fertile egg will be laid
