Default Axolotl feeding

Hey guys!
I have 2 young axies in my tank, both about 4 inches long. Ive been feeding them pieces of earthworms everyday but i am unsure how much I need to.
Any help would much appreciated!

You kind of want to feed them until they say "oh, no thank you, I couldn't possibly". If you're hand feeding when they refuse the food you're done, if you drop it in leave it for a little while and remove anything they haven't eaten. You want their tummies to be as wide as their head, a healthy axolotl has fat a belly. My envy knows no bounds.
