I was wondering if chickens eat fleas because we have indoor dogs and a cat and some outdoor cats and I haven't seen any fleas on them.

If they can catch them they will eat them, but I wouldn't count on them for a flea infestation. My dogs have never had fleas, generally they need to catch them from other dogs, or cats as fleas are generally host specific.
