What I did was use my Ichthyornis to Hunt fishes and bring the dead bodies for me.
Change his settings to "Hunt and retrieve", put him on your shoulder then you go swim. While you are swimming aim at The fish you want and double tap F (on PC). Ichthyornis will fly, kill the fish and bring the body to you.
Then you take the body to Hesperornis and feed it. Once you get used to it it's very fast and easy. I recommend following Hesp from behind so you dont need to adjust your aim all the time.
The most frustrating thing about taming these guys is not only do they take a lot of fish but the same button to feed them is the same button to drop the fish(i don’t know if it’s different in pc or ps4)and it’s constantly swinging around your face making it annoying because you’re constantly dropping it. Either make it so the controls to feed them are different then dropping it or make ur so it’s not constantly in ur face.
Tame to this kill fish and drag there body to it and once tamed if you feed them more dead fish corpses it will build up and lay a golden egg which is used as a buff to certain dinos or oil or a player buff
BIGGEST PAIN TO TAME EVER! have to get sabertooth fish kill them BUT do NOT harvest them you have to drag the body to it and feed it. Also good luck feeding it while the body is flailing everywhere in front of you. Also you CAN breed them.
don’t tame this guys. It’s Ito worth the effort. Seriously. You’re literally better off taming a breeding pair of yutyrannus for kibble eggs than taming this moron. Unless you’re in a very hoisted server I really don’t recommend.
Use a horse to lasso it, then you can move it around to new fish spawns when the area gets cleared. The horse can also step on the duck to pin it down, or simply use the lasso to keep it close while tribemates gather fish.
One of the worst things you need to tame for kibble, but this is how to do it:
1. Craft a wooden cage
2. Aggro it onto land
3. Place cage on top of it
4. Spend an hour killing fish and dragging them to it, feeding it through the bars carefully or you’ll open the cage and let it out.
5. You let it out, didn’t you? Pick the cage up and trap it again.
6. Watch out for that ichth- It stoke your fish... and half the stuff in your inventory. Kill it.
7. Cuss in frustration at every piranha on the Ark trying to eat you, then feed them to it too.
8. Finally finish taming the dumb bird - now just remember to keep feeding it fish forever.
Oh and watch out for Argentavis in the area, they like corpses and they don’t like you even if you’re carrying the corpse. They’ll steal your fish and then try to kill you.
Can't be picked up by anything while they are wild. They do aggro on you, and can walk through door frames, so you can kite them to a taming pen then use an itchy to bring those succulent salmon to you. Tamed a 140 last night in about 20 minutes.
I picked it up with a grappling hook, then jumped on my wyvern & flew it to a safer place to tame with lots of salmon. I also threw a tent over it to stop it from wandering off. Best way to tame. So much easier.
