    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. Do not cook them any more than a couple minutes or there's no use eating them at all.

      I ended up just buying crab meat since the store had it and used that instead. The scallops were meant to be a replacement for the crab meat, soup turned out great!

    I'd broil them first, and leave them out of the soup. When you serve a bowl of soup, add some of the scallops

    I'd cook the soup separately and lightly saute the seafood, then add it to the soup just before serving.

    its called seafood chowder and should NOT be made in a slow cooker.

    Yes, any seafood you use will turn to rubber when is over cooked.

    Rubbery.  You should put those in the last 10 minutes your soup is slow-cooking.
