I am if sure if this sentence sounds correct or not,
"you can tell Rachel that your and her hunch was right"
For some reason my brain wants me to change the 'your' to 'yours'. Also should the 'hunch was' be plural or not?

In your sentence, you are describing the hunch or hunches. Your and her are correct as adjectives modifying hunch. Yours, the pronoun would be used if there were an existing referent which yours could relate back to, such as
You can tell Rachel that her hunch was right, as was yours
The singular is correct if they shared the same hunch. It should be plural if they each had a separate or different hunch.
