Message:ziggysmom be natural. DOn't worry so much about your feathered charge and how he's going to handle going to the vet. If you act natural he'll know it's natural and he won't be all feathered panic when being examined.

Gloves? You do not need them for what you are doing. Gloves are usually a big no, no, however I've been taming a pair of cockateils, and sometimes, but not often do I have to use them.

And yes, there are dozens of books out on taming. But it sounds like the only problem you are having is Ziggy completely trusting you.

Good luck
