Thank you for rescuing these babies! At this point, they should be eating a little canned KITTEN formula wet food and kitten forumula dry food mixed with what's called "Kitten Milk Replacer" which comes in powder in a can at PetsMart or other pet stores. mixed with a little water. Don't give them cow's milk. It's not formulated for kittens and can upset their little tummies. Water is important too although at this stage they may spend more time playing in it than drinking it. If you can, it's probably not a bad idea to have them see a vet for worming meds and a general check-over, plus vaccinations. If you tell them you rescued these kittens, I know of a few vets who give huge fee breaks and some even waive their fee altogether, only charging for the meds.
