We are thinking about getting a couple of bottle lambs that would be at least 2 weeks old.

Any advice? Pros? Cons?

Bottle lambs can be a lot of fun and a lot of work.
2 weeks old is a good start, makes sure their back ends are not dirty (would indicate digestion issues or disease) also make sure they have been on a bottle already (some will pull them off ewes that are low in milk and it is hard to get them started on a bottle, so best done before they leave their original homes).
Also good to ask that they got colostrum at birth, no colostrum can cause health issues later on down the road.
We have had good luck with bottle lambs here.
