Wattle and Daub insulative values?

Greetings everyone - New here so I'll beg your pardon now if this is the wrong place to post this or if it's been dealt with in the past. I'm in the (very) early planning stages of a set of buildings for the point in time when we can finally afford our own piece of land. I'm pretty drawn to cob construction mainly because of my heritage but I am also looking at something along the lines of wattle and daub which is another old world construction method.

Wondered if anyone has any experience using wattle and daub construction and if so what sort of R values could one expect from the walls? I'm looking at both a home for my family but also various housing options for our animals (currently just chickens) as we get them.

Thanks in advance
