Let them decide for themselves. I'm in the PNW and my birds spend a fair amount of time outside in the rain unless it's really pouring.

is it OK to keep feeding this grower crumbles to my chickens

Yep, that's fine to keep them on for feed. If they're laying, you'll want to supplement calcium with oyster shell or their own eggshells.

I'm love the rain unless it's pouring or there are huge puddles. So long as they can dry them selves before it gets too cold. Mine go in the coop when they ate really wet and roLL in the dry dirt in the coop to dry themselves
