Concerning the adhan and iqamah for salatul 'eidain Ibn al-Qayyum writes: "When the Prophet went to the place of prayer, he would perform the salah without any adhan or iqamah and without saying the Friday congregational prayer."

The eid prayer consists of two ra'kat during which it is sunnah to pronounce the takbir seven times, after the opening takbir and before the Quranic recital in the first rak'ah. During the second rak'ah, one makes takbir five times after the takbir which is customarily made for standing after the prostration. One is to raise one's hands during each pronouncement of the takbir. This is based on a report transmitted from Umar and his son Abdullah. The Hanafi school holds that in the first rak'ah three takbirat are to be made after the opening takbir, but before the recital. This article or section does not cite its references or sources. ...
