Could "beide" be used in place of "zwei" in the answer "Die zwei Jungen werden Haehnchen essen"?

Die beiden Jungen werden ... essen.

(or: Beide Jungen werden ... essen.)

Yes

Beide Jungen werden Hänchen essen.

However, there would need be more context from earlier sentences.

was werden seine Söhne heute zum Abendessen essen?

Beide Jungen werde Hähnchen essen.

Isn't zwei adjective? Shouldn't it be "die zweien jungen"?

No, zwei is just a number.
