    Hi Crystal,

    Most likely the birds were ill when you purchased them.
    Unfortunately there is no way you will know for sure.

    I've been to my local Petsmart recently and many of the
    finches were not in good condition and too many birds in one
    cage. Illness spreads quickly in those closely confined
    conditions. Finches are very good at hiding their illnesses
    until it is to late and then they die very quickly.

    I would try to locate a breeder to buy from directly.
