If you boil an egg and mix it up with some veggies, it could help fatten Petrie up. You might want to hand feed Petrie some sunflower seeds by pinching the sunflower seed in between your fingers so Caesar doesn't see and feed him lower fat seeds. I've also read that chia seeds are relatively fatty.

For soaking pellets, I boil the water and then soak the pellets. It immediately turns my pellets into mush.

You could also teach Caesar to fly to your finger. It'll be a good way for him to exercise and lose weight. Even if his wings are clipped, he should still be able to fly a few feet. Flock talk has a lot of YouTube videos on training your bird so I would check it out.

Do you use foraging toy? Try putting only pellets in the food dish and seeds in the foraging toys so Caesar has to work to get seeds.
