Some ahadith about udhiya:

The Prophet  (s.a.w) said:

"When you see the new moon of Dhu’l-Hijjah, if any one of you wants to offer a sacrifice, then he should stop cutting his hair and nails until he has offered his sacrifice."
(reported by Muslim with four isnaads, 13/146)

The Prophet  (s.a.w) said:

"There is no deed more precious in the sight of Allaah, nor greater in reward, than a good deed done during the ten days of Sacrifice." He was asked, "Not even jihaad for the sake of Allaah?" He said, "Not even jihaad for the sake of Allaah, except in the case of a man who went out to fight giving himself and his wealth up for the cause, and came back with nothing."
(Reported by al-Daarimi, 1/357; its isnaad is hasan as stated in al-Irwaa’, 3/398).

Narrated Jundab bin Sufyan Al-Bajali:

I witnessed the Prophet on the Day of Nahr. He said, "Whoever slaughtered the sacrifice before offering the 'Id prayer, should slaughter another sacrifice in its place; and whoever has not slaughtered their sacrifice yet, should slaughter now."
Complete Sahih Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 68, Number 469

Aaishah radhiyallahu anhaa narrates:

Rasulullah (s.a.w) said:
"There is nothing dearer to Allah during the days of  Qurbani than the sacrificing of animals. The sacrificed animal shall  come on the Day of Judgement with its horns, hair, and hooves (to  be weighed). The sacrifice is accepted by Allah before the blood  reaches the ground. Therefore sacrifice with an open and happy  heart."
Tirmizi pp. 275 Vol.1) (Ibne Maajah pp. 226 Vol.1

Abu Ayyoob:

“At the time of the Messenger of Allaah (s.a.w), a man would sacrifice a sheep on behalf of himself and the members of his household, and they would eat from it and give some to others.”
Reported by Ibn Maajah and al-Tirmidhi, who classed it as saheeh
