Have you taken the bird to a vet for a post mortem?
You really should find out why the bird died.
If you can establish the cause of death it could mean that you have a good
argument for the pet shop to refund your money or provide you with another
bird free of charge.
However, the main reason for finding out the cause of death is so that you
can establish whether you need to treat all of your other birds. Just
because you kept the new birds separate from your original stock does not
mean that they will be totally safe.
