You should be glad he doesn't soak them. Mine has a water bottle so she just gobbles them up and then drinks a lot of water to soak them inside her crop :D

If your parrot eats pellets, you have nothing to worry about. The soaking is usually done to introduce parrots who don't eat pellets to eating them cause it is easier for them to eat that way. If it already eats pellets then there is no reason to.

Take away the water while eating pellets and then give it after finished eating and take pellets away.
