The obvious answer is, in this case, the correct one.

Not all of them. I would bet that those who are experiencing relatively
short incubation times are also those who are using "elevated" storage
There is not real trick to shortening the incubation times of Notho eggs but
that is not necessarily what everyone wants. Personally, I prefer longer
incubation times as it broadens the hatching window and gives me greater
flexibility. The longer incubation times are also closer to what happens in
nature, although that is not necessarily an important factor.
