Yes, you can incubate a pullet's first egg. I did it with my Silkies' first eggs. Whether it's fertile or not is another question entirely. I have about the same male to female ratio between my year old rooster (only male old enough to mate at the moment) and laying pullets and hens, and only 7 of the 42 eggs I put in the incubator were fertile.
