Question Unsocialized kittens

We have two male kittens that we just picked up last night. They were born in a barn and have had very little human contact thus far. They were born March 5th so they are 7 weeks old. They are terrified, understandably, but we are hoping/praying they can be socialized and turned into happy, healthy, loving cats.
They are in a spare room, separate from our two older cats and our dog. They hiss at us all the time and shy/run away, right now. I was just wondering if anyone else has had any experience with this kind of situation and has any advice. Thank you.
