Are they worth it ?(in my opinion: no)

Also, do the companion ones (dragons and firebirds AFAIK (please correct wrongness)) level up and mature?

Well, that is a different question! :)

To 'have I ever found them useful' I had to answer yes, since one time, an egg was very useful to my character. It was a very weak, very low level character. She found a firebird egg (or was it a dragon one? long time ago...) *very* shallow (like DL 1 or 2). It hatched almost instantly, and survived for quite a long time, making itself very useful against assorted low level monsters.

As to whether they are worth it.... probably not. But I still like finding them for some odd reason. :)

I'm fairly certain they don't mature.

the only reason I said yes is that they can bring in some serious cash, if you are about to leave an area; otherwise they are too heavy to lug around!

Hmm.... Would be interesting to level a sparrow/dragon from 1 onwards... Too bad they'll always be lacking resists.

And there's always the fun of egging an enemy

wow, this is an old thread.

You can buy a sparrow egg.
Let it hatch into a companion.
zap it with a rod of polymorph to get a better companion.
You can keep polymorphing it until you get something that resists confusion IIRC.
If you do this in Angband your companion will be leveled.

I haven't done this in ages, since I almost never use companions, but I did find it amusing for a while.

That is some cool lateral thinking. Never thought of that
