Ringneck,lovebird,or parrotlet

Recently me and my family have been thinking about getting a new bird. We have owned budgies,cockatiels,Quakers,conures,and lovebirds before so it won't be our first parrot. I was wondering what species some people on here would suggest? We were thinking maybe a ringneck,lovebird,or parrotlet but any suggestions would be appreciated! Thank you!

Can I ask what led to you not having a bird anymore? Knowing that I important to suggesting a bird that wonít end up being rebomed. Also, what draws you to these three specifically?

Oh sorry I should have put in that we still do own multiple birds right now and we are kind if looking for a sweet bird that dosent have to be cuddly and is maybe a bit smaller than a conure. I think we've decided on not getting a ringneck so now we are just choosing between a love bird or a parrotlet. We were thinking love bird because we have owned one before but and she was amazing but sadly she died of old age a few years ago. We are also thinking maybe a parrotlet because they can be quite smart and some are quite sweet and affectionate.

In the race between lovebird and parrotlets I typically recommend a lovebird especially if youíve already had one so you already know what they tend to be like

Why lovebirds? Lovebird, parrotlet, or BeeBee are how I am narrowing for me. I see fewer complaints about lovebirds biting. I donít really care if they bite a little, my Tiel used to bite me but never drew blood
