I know that news paper is not good for chick bedding. B ut is shredded newspaper bad too. I was planning on making the shredded newspaper about 2 1/2 inches.
Any and all answers help.

I wouldn't use it. Paper doesn't keep moisture away and damp conditions aren't good for chickens.

I agree 100%. There are too many alternatives to use anything that has negatives.​

for the first couple of days I used shavings under paper towels...till they figured out their food then I removed the towels...they love to scratch too much!

I have heard some people using old bath towels also...

I replace it every three days so I wouldnt like to think that there would be too much moister. I get free newspaper in my neighborhood so I pick it up and shred it in my papre shredder.
