I think but am not sure that there's a guide on his DVD.

I used the hand over the back and gradually turning the bird over method with my green cheek but he is a real cuddlebug anyway so it worked fine. I worked towards laid in my hand, laid in my hand without gripping my fingers and then placing him gently on a soft surface but then I ran in to problems getting him to want to roll over himself.

Guy.G has similar methods which will also work with less touching but its probably still best to get the bird used to a little touching viewtopic.php?f=17&t=8816&p=60075#p60075 This is what helped me get over the hurdle of getting Ollie to roll himself onto his back
