It is best to leave the cedar out of your rabbit's cage. Cedar chips are toxic to rabbits. They contain chemicals called phenols and hydrocarbons. These chemicals can cause respiratory distress as well as harm to the liver. There are safe alternatives to cedar chips such as bedding made from recycled newspapers.

No, cedar is not safe for a rabbit. It can cause severe respiratory issues. Safe alternatives are aspen, kiln dried pine, and recycled paper type bedding such as Carefresh and other brands. Cotton type bedding or "fluffy bedding" is also unsafe.

Do not put them in the cage. Cedar Chips can cause breathing problems in rabbits and damage their lungs. I suggest you use recycled cotton bedding. They absorb urine and water a lot better than chips and they don't have the smell that causes these breathing issues in your rabbits.
