They are the dodo birds of the "Star Wars" universe. They also probably taste like chicken.

They are the nunas, small and flightless birds that zip around on two legs through the swamps of Naboo. Prolific omnivores, they mostly devour plants but also gobble down amphibians when given the chance. Without any real defenses, nunas run from danger as quickly as their skinny legs can carry them, but often their stupidity cost them their lives. Only their high reproductive rates have kept them from going extinct.

Nunas are adaptable creatures and actually have thrived on many planets, in both the wild and in cities. Sometimes they have been scorned as pests, but they have also proven to be a useful food source, making their presence welcome to the hungry masses.
