Ellen, how old are these kittens? The younger they are, the easier it wil be to tame them. We trapped Ashley and Nicky out of their feral colony when they were 4 months old. Those 2 hissed and spit like little tazmanian devils at first. They hid for weeks in my room, but eventually calmed down. Now they are a wonderful part of our family. You can tame these kittens, it just takes time and patience. The little ones have learned the defensiveness from their mom already. I have to laugh when the little ones try and be so ferocious. But I have also been bitten very severely, so I know it's not fun. If you keep them in a cage or a small room with their water and litter and bring them food at certain times of the day, they will soon get used to you. Sit in the room and just talk gently to them without trying to pet them. Let them get used to you, offer them some tasty tidbits and you can even try enticing them to play with a feather wand or something like that. Don't force them to you, let them come to you and you will be surprised how well they can adjust and become friendly.
Good luck and keep us posted!
