Often translated as meaning small round fecal pellets, referring to the shape of goat droppings. A colorful usage, though more emphatic expression (in Yiddish more so than in English) is "Bupkis mit Kuduchas" (באָבקעס (bobkes) מיט (mit) קודוצ׳ה (kuduts'h)), translating roughly to "shivering shit balls" - kuduchas referring to the condition of generalized shaking palsy.
