Aaaaw, bless their lil hearts and yours too! Welcome on board!

Do you have a little kitten baby bottle handy by any chance? If so, just fill it up with warm water for now, maybe add a little sugar and tiny bit of salt to it.

Also, offer them some heat to cuddle up to. Like a rice buddy (take an old sock, fill the foot with uncooked dry rice, tie knot in the top part of sock, place in microwave for max 2 minutes, wrap old tshirt around it and put in with the kittens).

Warmth and the fluids should quiet them down a little.

On a 2nd thought, if they are already 3 weeks old, have eyes open and teeth, then you can try feeding them canned cat food or even better, soaked dry cat food.

If you don't have a little bottle handy to feed them with, you can try a syringe (without the needle of course!!). They suckle on those too.
