The adult male has a yellow patch over each eye, is grayish on top with a white breast, and has a dark brown throat and a black belly; two yellowish sacs on the neck are inflated during courtship display.

The adult female is mottled gray-brown with a light brown throat and dark belly. During this period, sage‐grouse chicks are vulnerable to predation; accordingly, survival curves have the steepest declines during the first 14 days posthatch (Dahlgren et al., ; Gregg et al., ).

Females come to the leks to mate. They generally nest in the vicinity. A high proportion of nests are located within km (4 mi.) of the lek when suitable nesting habitat exists. However, some studies have shown that female sage grouse or hens nest as far as 20 km (12 mi.) away from the lek (Autenrieth ,Wakkinen et al.

Feeding trials with insects in the diet of sage grouse chicks. Seasonally, 81 samples (67%) were collected during the spring/summer post-melting period, when the main diet variation took place, and 40 samples (33%) were collected in the autumn/winter period. A total of droppings were collected and analysed by means of microhistological analysis to determine diet composition [ 35 ].

Female sage-grouse can nest as yearlings. Over 7 years in Idaho, 55% of yearling female sage-grouse nested and 12% renested, while 78% of adult female sage-grouse nested and 17% renested.

In eastern Oregon, 99% of all females nested during 3 years.
