    I would constrain the three sprockets so they only have one degree of freedom (an easy way is to mate the hole with a pin/screw and then constrain it to a block or something) then it should move the chain when you rotate one of the items.

    Hope this helps,

    See if this helps constrain the chain to the sprocket:

    Also, you could use a belt and wheel to make the animation much easier or you could adapt the same procedure used for 2 sprockets and constrain the 3rd the same way.

    Hope this helps
