I sometimes see some chew marks but it's nearly nothing. Present only in the paper. In the past my dad was chasing them for chewing the armchair. I still don't know why they used to like chew it (there were chew marks)
Ellen just recently mentioned that it's not safe to put absorbent or paper material anywhere they can chew it, in this post:
A shameful question...

My birds came with oyster grit in one feeder dish.
I had read another opinion that paper is safe
