So it just so happens i am watching Monsters Inside Me right now and I'm getting kinda paranoid. Is there anything i could buy to tests my eggs for parasites or bacteria like Salmonella?

If you cook your eggs properly, salmonella won't be a threat. I don't know that you can get parasites from eating eggs. Maybe you should watch something else...

you can pay to have your flock tested by your state vet for salmonella pullorum and/or avian influenza (the two diseases of chickens that can effect humans). it's a simple matter of drawing blood from under the wing of each bird, then waiting a few weeks for the test results.
