Half of their cage is lined with newspaper and hay, the other is fleece.

Is it too often to redo their newspaper and hay every morning? I tend to leave a bit of the old hay in there. Or should I do this less frequently and just top up the hay?

P.S. Meant to add, I only intend on washing the fleece once a week. But I do do a poop scoop up daily.

You will want to remove any wet hay and newspaper every day. Any that isn’t wet can remain for a few days

I tend to day hay areas daily (every 2nd day at most) and the fleeces once a week with pee pads more often.
So your plan sounds fine.
