|Kittens that age usually aren't ready for dry food. I found a 4 or 5 week old kitten in a parking lot in Aug and heres what I did for her.
I got KMR (milk replacer for kittens) and mix that with the dry (Serengeti all life stages), let sit until it is mushy. I mixed in a little canned (Felidae all life stages) and fed her about a teaspoon or so every 3 or 4 hours. Kittens that young need to be fed often. I made sure she always had fresh waterand continued feedings that often until she was about 7 or 8 weeks.Their little tummies aren't going to be able to handle a lot at once. Gradually you can start introducing the dry as is, but watch to make sure they are eating it ok. If they aren't continue mixing it with the KMR or whatever milk replacer you are using.
If you are not using an all life stages food, try to use a food that is made especially for kittens.
Also watch the litter box to be sure whats going in is coming out!
