My rabbit doesn't eat her cecetropes

Hi everyone
I don't know if my female rabbit is producing too much cecetropes or if she isn't eating any at all, this is causing her to have a sticky bum.

I would like to know what I can do to fix this. I was recommended giving her fresh hay daily (which she always had) her pellets in the morning and kale, carrots and broccoli in the afternoon.

However this doesn't seem to do anything to help. She is a rescue rabbit and we know she is at least 2 years old. Currently it has been really and snowy weather so she is indoors and out of it, she is usually in a rabbit run with a shed for shelter.

Since she has been inside she hasn't had exercise to the same extent as before as she is used to having the ability to run around whenever. Could this have anything to do with it?

I really don't know what to do, my other rabbit, her hutch mate is perfectly fine, he eats his cecetropes and doesn't have a sticky bum. We have an appointment with the vets but unfortunately it's not for another week as it is the first available appointment.

Any help in advance would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
