My friend has three hens, three dogs, and three indoor-outdoor cats and one squirrel. She feeds the dogs and cats regular canned food.
None of her cats have ever gone after her chickens, but they do go after (and kill) birds and squirrels. So, as long as your chickens can more or less defend themselves, I don't think you'll have a problem.
On the other side of the coin, I feed my feral cat colony canned Friskies which I keep in a gas oven (keeps it a little above room temperature). Every morning I get out four cans in full sight of Ritz. She doesn't connect the canned food with the raw food I feed her.
