    yes, they should do it.
    p.s.: panxy, el dodo no esta en peligro de extincion. ya está extinto. y ¿adivina como se extinguio?. fue cazada indiscriminadamente por el hombre.

    and if you get the chance, please read “The Ugly Chickens” by Howard Waldrop. It won the 1980 Nebula Award for best science-fiction novelette. It is about the bird in question here.
