    My chickens absolutely love their feed to be soaked down with water. Is that okay? Or will or could it cause any problems with crop or any other health issue ? Thanks guys! Also the type of feed I give them has probiotic in it already. But I also give them probiotic powder for their water. Because my hens always have waterey stool and it's on their butt feathers :/ my rooster never ever has that issue !! Only the hens.

    Yes you can give them wet food. Try looking into fermented feed. Let it sit a few days and it's even better for them.
