My budgies love to hang out for much of the day in the dining room, on top of the china cabinet. Let's just say, it can get a bit "messy" up there after a while. While cleaning it every now and then isn't the biggest deal in the world, we're starting to worry that bird poop repeatedly drying and sticking to it is going to eventually damage the finish on the wood.
Anyway, the plan is to cover the parts they sit on with recyclable Trader Joe's paper bag material trimmed to fit the area and just remove it before guests come over so we don't appear insane. Not sure yet how we're going to stick it to the wood in a bird-safe way yet.
But my main question is, if my birds pick/chew on the paper bag and swallow a small piece, could it be harmful to them?

I would not use the TJ's bag because of the printing on the outside, not knowing what is in the ink I would not want my birds to get it in their mouth. I would use either plain newsprint paper or plain white paper towels.
