In taming it's most important to take time with them getting used to you and especially your hand. Additionally, you've really only had them a short time and just slowing up and following the stickies suggestions will help. Just a hand not moving, outside of cage then a hand not moving inside the cage, later hand slowly moving but not trying anything to make contact, and finally contact and later stepping up. If you do this by stages it should go much better for you. Just slow down, because your two, are individuals and with them together, the fear exhibited by one can rub off on the other (and tameness of one can be helpful for the other). Stop whenever you get a negative response and go back a step.
Just don't give up.
