I also advise against trying to force the kittens to be weaned. I found with my kittens, they all advance at their own rate. One of my kittens was about 2 weeks behind the others, eventually, he caught up. Trust that your kittens will do the same. You may need to "help" them realize that the canned food is what they want. When the other kittens are enjoying the canned food, stick your finger into the mixture, and then put your finger in the mouths of the other kittens that are not eating. It may be frustrating for a few days, but they will catch on. Before you know it, they will love it as much as the others. I had to do this for a few days with mine. You may also want to stick to the same flavor until they are all eating the canned food. When they get a little older, then you can start introducing a little variety.
