WWII troop slang for military bureaucratic bullshit. The word implies that the regulations in question are so silly and trifling that they don't measure up to the level of bullshit. Subsequently, the word came to be merely an intensification of the epithet chicken.
In life and death matters, soldiers relied on their common sense and ignored the chickenshit regulations their superiors foisted upon them whenever possible.

1) Petty regulations that don't make it to the level of bullshit. A favorite purview of martinets and high-handed bureaucrats.

2) Afraid; cringing; cowardly; reluctant to get off one's ass and put up.

3) Unintelligible verbiage, scrawl, or scritch-scratch.
The new CO's chickenshit was driving the first sergeant batshit; he had bigger things to worry about than snapping salutes from a quarter-mile away, with the enemy waiting just over the hill.

He was too chickenshit to go down to the cellar and deal with Leatherface.

I can't make heads or tails out of this chickenshit they added to the agreement. Tell them to clarify it so we know we're eye-to-eye.
