    Is it possible? Even in a doghouse sized coop?
    How is it done?

    Yes, the Deep Litter Method is possible in small coops. Check out the Deep Litter Method page that I've put together. We have 3 small coops and I use the DLM in all of them.

    Hope this is some help!

    I actually just asked this question in the deep Litter thread. People with the small chick-en-hut style coops are able to do it.
