Ocho doesn't chew his at all, so I left it. Our winters get cold and I worried that he might get a chill.

If you use happy huts (and we do,) you should inspect them regularly to be sure there's no loose strings or holes being chewed into them by your fid. Happy ate through the loops that it hangs from over and over, so I finally took a 'scrunchie' (you know, ladies use them for ponytails?) and cut one in half to cover the loops with...she chews the scrunchie rather than the loops now. I clean her cage daily so I just inspect the hut then. She LOVES her hut and I think she'd be miserable without it. She sleeps in it and preens it as though it's a bird pal.

You'll find that a lot of the negative feedback or warnings floating around the internet on the dangers of happy huts are actually somehow linked to manufacturers who want to sell you a happy hut "alternative". Unless you are negligent in how you monitor your bird and their surroundings, happy huts shouldn't pose any more of a risk to the bird than any other toy. You'll usually be able to spot a loose string on a happy hut before it poses any risk to the parrot.
