When you begin do not instantly kill all the dodos in your area because you need some easy meat and hide. What you'll want to do is start taming a bunch of them and breeding them. This results on you a) having a constant supply of eggs and b) as you breed higher level dodos you can kill off the lower level ones to get that meat and hide you need.
The humble dodo, this bird is great for attacking other players. You can use it as biological warfare set on wander grab with a pteradon and infect it. Once it's sicker than clinton drop it in the enemy base. Kaboom creative way to infect enemies and douch bags.
Dodo's have a chance to lay an egg every time they poop. So force-feed them a bunch of stimberries (That will make them poop, and lay eggs)! Just make sure that you have some regular berries because it will make their food go down. Never again will you have to worry about obtaining Dodo eggs. You will only need to tame one!
