Before we all get confused because we don't know why the ender egg keeps jumping, you need a regular piston to push it sideways to collect it.
You can't collect the Ender Dragon Egg normally. You'll either just break it or teleport it. You need an unconventional method, like having a Piston push it and turn it into a drop, in order to collect it.

Correction you can't just break the block underneath it, you need to dig 2 blocks below the egg and place a torch and then break the block right below the egg so it falls onto the torch. That will cause it to drop as an item. You'll have to hit the egg once to make it teleport so it's in a good position to collect.
