    We live in Texas, and the weather is super crotchety here in the spring and fall...
    I was curious as to how much wind a tall chicken coop made of hardy plank could withstand? Thanks!!!

    That would depend on many things. How tall in relation to the base. How well it is anchored. What is its flexibility is. What it weighs. You might get a better response over in the coop&run building maintenance and design forum.
