Well it really depends on your living conditions, if you live in an apartment I wouldn't suggest one of the bigger guys due to noise! Also it depends on the size of cage you can accomodate, these guys need a lot of room and they utilise every square inch of their cages including the floor, so you need a bigger cage for a lorikeet then you would for another similar sized bird. The rainbow lorikeets are always great birds, there are a few different types such as green-nape, swainsons, red-collar, etc- any of these guys are great, and it doesn't matter which subspecies as they all have the same kind of personality. If you wanted one of the bigger guys you could always get a black lory or a chattering, or if you want a smaller bird you could get a perfect, scaley, goldies etc. My suggestion would be to get in touch with a few breeders and see what they have available.
