    I am getting rabbits!
    Should I use a light bulb in the hutch at night?
    What bedding should I use?
    What food should I give them?

    Congrats! How old, what breed what purpose are you getting them for(Meat, pets, fur?)? I wouldn't (And don't) use a lightbulb in the hutch. We use hay and pine straw as bedding though a lot of people use pine shavings. As for food we give ours fodder and some pellets though they aren't fond of the pellets after getting a taste of fodder. We have rabbitats as well, we don't hutches.
