Anyone have experience taking in feral cats?

There's a colony of feral cats living under the neighbor's deck. Just about every summer a new group of kittens appears on my porch to eat the food we leave out for the yellow cat that's been living on our porch since before we bought the place.

This summer's batch was 4 kittens that were all on our porch one night a couple of months ago. After that night we've only seen two of them return, a little skinny grey one that I'm pretty sure is a male and a calico, and they've taken to basically living on the porch as well. I've been feeding them wet food and over the last few weeks they've become friendly, friendly enough to the point they'll run up to me just for pats and attention. They will let me pick them up, and they follow me around the yard like a parade, it's quite adorable. They're still quite kitten-y and small.

My wife and I are considering taking them in, at least until we can find them another home. Or maybe we'll just keep them, though I'm not sure how happy our two existing cats will be about that. We're at least going to get them fixed and vaccinated and stuff.

Anyone have any experience bringing in feral cats?

You want kitten pics? I got your kitten pics right here! From that first night they were on the porch:

Sorry if they're blurry.
