Collecting eggs for tumbler?

Hi all - I have just invested in my first egg-tumbler and was just wondering... For those of you who use them, how do you go about collecting the eggs?

Thanks,
ozmo

Just strip the female of tthe eggs like you would fry and transfer them to the tumbler. Good luck!

I probably should have also mentioned these are Dovii and Festae and lay there eggs in flower pots. So basically the eggs are semi attached to the flower pot.

So how do I safely remove the eggs from the ceramic pot surface?

Thanks,
ozmo

Oh. Lol all mine are mouth brooders so I don't have any experience with that. But you may not need to tumble them at all. Hopefully someone with some more knowledge on that can help.
