Me and my friends once had a dodo farm and we were choosing some dodos they chose one but I secretly got another named Felix and hides him in a little house I made for him then raptors came and attacked him I was so sad I got another dodo and named it Felix jr and made a more protected house for him and made a grave for Felix the first.
I turned min mating intervals on along with hatching and growing for my dodo farm creative server. My dodos can mate every 3 min, grow in about 4 min, and hatch in almost 2 mins. I started over with 2. In 10 mins I have about 8 now.
if u are new to ark then yes u can tame one or two but don't let ot get tooo much. i know they are cute but that's it. they are not helpful and u need to take care of them. i had so much of them and it broke my heart to kill them because i couldn't tame more dinosaurs
