Koi Fish Egg!!!

Hi my cousin neighborhood have a pond with 6 or more koi fish and she's been throwing the egg away (crazy) cause she don't what to do with it. So later I'm going over there and pick up thousand of koi egg all over the pond. They spawn every 2 week. But the thing is its a 30 min drive will the egg still be alive ? I know I need a air pump with a control value but can I just put them in the same water in a container and drive all the way back home in time for them to be alive still? When will they hatch? When they're red it mean they're fertilize ? I can't wait til I get them.

When I kept koi and goldfish I would let them feed on the spawn (they would do it anyway if I did nothing). I think of it as recycling nutrients.

How big of a pond do you plan to put 15 koi in? I have close to 15 large koi in a 4000g pond with an overflow and filtering system.
