Dodos are actually quite durable. I had two dodos and a dilo and a carno spawned near my base. Because my base was on a hill and I had spears, I killed the carno but it took the life of a dodo. Tame as many as you can as they will be useful later on in the game.
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!
