No dragons, but my current group has a werewolf who has 3 points of 'hide armour'.
Just give the level of protection that seems right. Very young / small dragons might just have leather-equivalent, with plate (or better!) being reserved for the larger ones. They have to have something to look forward to, after all...

I think the best way to resolve this is just to throw them into various fights and see what happens, 'play testing' 😀⚔️🎲. Vs lots of small goblins, Vs big fire giants, Vs human warriors, Vs melee and Vs missile weapons and just see how it plays out. They may need some spare dragons.

Well we've opted for a blend of your suggestions. We using Hit ratings based on the T&T armour table where a hatchling starts at the equivalent of Light Leather armour. So this goes up by one class of armour per level. Then you get a bonus of CON/10. This seems to give us the right numbers. No dead dragons yet but they have been scared 🙂 and there's now a canyon full of minced ogres.
You know, with the right marinade I know a tavern-keeper who would be interested in purchasing all that fresh meat. Pan fried with some potatoes, mushrooms, onions, garlic, perhaps a little ginger and smoked paprika it could go quite well. Or you could just spend a couple of days drying strips into pocket-jerky.
Waste not, want not!
I'll have the deep-fried battered pixie with balrog dipping sauce and a Hobgoblin ale.
