On mobile, there is a little thing called dodo size. It dictates two things, 1. How you go about transporting the dodo, and 2. What bits you can put on it. You can breed them to get the size you want, for the purposes you want. Little dodos are shoulder birds, medium dodos are regular dodos, and large dodos can be ridden and can equip bits.
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. :)
Dodos are good practice for breeding. They are easy to care for(hand feed them plenty of berries so they don’t starve), and if you fail, you can get prime meat(is it brutal, yes, yes it is.) If you can raise a dodo, you can raise other Dinos.
There should be longrass-bread (cornbread) in Ark. Put longrass and oil in a preserving bin and wait, then you have dried longrass. Then grind it up in a mortar and pestle and you have longrass flour. Then mix with water in a campfire and you have cornbread! Should keep a long while and fill a lot of hunger. This would be awesome. Up so Developers can see!
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!
