I need to take a couple of frames of eggs from one hive and install in another hive that are not at the same location. How long can the frames & eggs be out of the hives?

Just by what I know of temps -
If you keep them warm and moist (bees keep it about 90) there is no reason I know of they should die until they hatch and no bees feed them.
They can probably be kept cooler than 90 but I don't know.

How long of time are we talking here? I think if there was any kind of doubt in my mind and I needed that frame to be viable I'd transport a hive or nuc, pull the brood, and then haul the donor back.
