We got our new Rabbits yesterday and they were cleaned out this morning, is it best to clean them out every day or every other day, with fresh bedding, food and water every day?

I clean out the areas my bunnies toilet in every other day, any less and you risk flystrike. I clean out the whole hutch once a week (although since mine are very clean I'm a little more slack with this!)
Mine have runs attached to their hutches anyway, so they're not in them much.
Definately yes to fresh food and water every day. Pellets are better than the muesli type mixes, as they will inevitably eat the nice bits and leave the bits that are good for them. Fresh hay always available, and lots of nice toys!

Clean the toilet out every other day, and deep clean once a week.
Every day she has fresh water, greens and pellets and hay.

Ours has a morning run around the garden for an hour and same after dinner, though she prefers coming into the house and sleeping under the kitchen table!

Thanks, I will clean them out every day I do the whole hutch and disinfect.
My Girls have the pellets as I read some were that they were better for them and they have greens and hay as well. One of them nicked my apple and had that as well!
They do spend alot of time either inside or free-roaming the garden.
Atm they have tunnels, a small kong teeth chewy things and balls but do not seem interested in them they prefer hopping over me dh and the dc's!
