We evaluated the influence of insect reductions on survival of sage grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus) chicks with 148 captive individuals aged 2-45 days when treatment began. Captive sage grouse chicks <21 days old needed insects for survival and development, whereas birds >21 days old required insects for optimum development. Quantity of insects in the diet was correlated with sage grouse chick survival and growth.
