At the risk of seeming a smart alec, I must point out that you've made a very common error. The curate's egg is not an actual egg; in fact, it is the fatty extreme end portion of the tail of a chicken when cooked.

I think you are getting your curates egg mixed up with the parsons nose.

Parson - a beneficed member of the clergy; a rector or a vicar. Curate - a member of the clergy engaged as assistant to a vicar or rector.

You, sir, are taking a hair and splitting it into infinitives.

Curates egg: 'a thing that is partly good and partly bad'

Parsons nose: 'a fleshy protuberance at the rear end of a bird (usually chicken, duck or turkey in culinary usage).'

Eggs and chicken, shmeggs and schmicken!

You're in the weeds, now, quibbling foodstuffs!
