Soft Hands achievement

Dungeons, Raids and Scenarios
What in the world do you have to do for this? Can't find anything on it.

(For the curious, this is the achievement on Ji-Kun.)
A quick update as to what is known at this time:

According to an MMO-Champion thread (currently found here), the achievement has now been acquired by one raid group - Set Sail for Fail, EU-Lothar. The screenshots in said thread give an interesting indicator: The golden egg is being carried, and the carrier is one of the people with a 'flight' buff.

While the poster is being a touch coy, the hint they offer is "Watch the upper nest near the first nest."

Short Brainstorming Analysis:
Given the clues above: Odds are good the golden egg spawns near the start of the fight in this out-of-the-way location. Someone has to get the feather-flight buff, head up to the spawn location, and pick it up. Unknown at this point what all can break the egg.

Possibilities for causing egg-breakage:
The carrier dying. If this doesn't break it, the wording of the achievement combined with the egg being carry-able suggests it could be blown off the edge on its own if not being currently held. This would also explain why previous attempts to find the egg mid-fight failed - it fell and vanished after the first Downdraft.
The egg having its own lifebar to heal up, breaking when it reaches zero, a la Tsulong's tree achievement.
The carrier being blown off the edge while holding the egg.
The carrier taking too much damage in a single blow, requiring cooldowns on them during quills, perhaps (seems less likely, but I wouldn't put it past Blizzard).

The first two seem the most likely, to me. In any case, with this initial bit of guidance, hopefully multiple raid groups can give it a shot this week and report back on their findings. Also report on whether the egg spawns each pull or is a one-shot thing each week, if possible.
