Its fine. If you’re seeing plenty of wet spots in the cage then they are getting plenty of fluids - it’s possibly just coming more from their veg intake. I’ve only seen one of mine at a the bottle a handful of times in three years.
With my guinea pigs, when i got them they didn't drink from the bottle so I just put a bowl with water in it and they did drink from it and then I introduced the bottle. So just try different things. Hope this helped.
