Place these next to the outer walls of your base. If explosives are used to destroy the wall, the Dodo will die. Then you can look in your tribe manager and see who broke into your base since one of your tames was killed. Also useful for their eggs to make pteradon kibble.
You should they should be the first things you can build a dodo pen then build some foundations that they can sit on the edge and make eggs get mainly females and about five males because only the females will lay eggs you should know this the reason for the males is so you can get fertilized out of eggs and then hatch the baby dodos kill them to get prime meat reason for the females is just to get normal eggs to eat in a hurry or make some good kibble
For the guy who said that it would be cool if a dodo could sit on your shoulder: on ark mobile, a dodo smaller than .75 can in fact be carried on your shoulder. Dodos over 2.6 can be ridden. Fun fact. :)
