"Baby" needs an answer?

Ok, Baby squawks loudly, nibbles or appears to bite, chew on left foot, almost like it's irritating him. He's a happy bird, eats well flies great and is my only joy. We are a team and I mean a real team.
So i guess the problem is the same foot, or is he irritating his beak in some way. He's clean, clean environment, good food, snacks are not too rich. clean water, cage is clean, large and he's only in that when its bed time for the both of us. I only worry cause I don't want anything wrong to happen to him. Oh, theres no blood at all, no scaling, no raw places on his feet or beak, some dry or small areas of old beak? I think thats the term. He's happy, healthy and he thinks he's all that, whup!
Thanks, and if he (or she?) needs to get some Saturday nite action, should I get him a soft toy to do the funky chicken with? Seriously, he does get amorous at times, rubs under my forearm up and down, flufs up and seems to enjoy it.
