    I'm assuming you had your bird diagnosed with mycoplasma gallisepticum and infectious coryza (which usually go hand in hand.) Are there any other symptoms other that what you stated in your first post?
    Here's a link to respiratory diseases in poultry. Scroll down and read about both diseases if you wish:

    I recommend that you get your money back if the the bird was sick prior to or just after purchase. I recommend that you cull the bird, both diseases will quickly spread to your other birds if you havnt quarantined it (biosecurity.)
