There was apparently a stealth nerf to onyx egg spawn rates recently.
Along with an influx of players that are egg hunting so they can reach exalted. :p
That's probably why you're having trouble finding eggs. :x
As for a tip, pay attention to the mountain tops and in between the mountain tops.
The eggs seem to spawn around those areas for the most part.

Good joke, I'm on Frostmourne and the reality of an egg is just non-existent. I have spent 2 days looking along side over 20 other people at all hours of the day, never even seen an egg.
Rep grind in this expansion is an absolute joke.

8 people actively "sit" on the mountain tops surrounding the isle and made it virtually impossible to get any eggs. I remember getting 9 in a row in the third day, then I haven't seen any since. I will be really saddened if I gotta grind dailies to get from revered to exalted.

I used an Addon to help with the spawn locations. It required TomTom and this addon simply put in egg locations as way points so you could see them on your minimap. You could fly around using the TomTom arrow to a location which helped. I didn't really try to focus on the eggs, I just flew through a couple of times to check.
It helped me to get a couple of eggs I would have otherwise missed, but ultimately, the grind wasn't too bad if I remember correctly.
Off hours are the best way. I'm on a medium pop realm and if I go any time during offhours, I can grab 5-7 of them right out of the gate. Even during main hours I can usually grab one or two, but I've leveled through exalted rep in 3 sittings before, no sitting lasting longer than 20 minutes or so.
