The chances of an egg being shiny are the same as those of a wild pokemon being shiny: 1 in about 8000.

There's the Masuda breeding method, though - breed two pokemon from different nationality games (for example, a japanese ekans and an american seviper) and the shiny chance is quadrupled.

1 in 2000 is still pretty low, though.

I got me a shiny torchic after 60+ eggs with Masuda method.
I say it's worth it if the pokemon you try it on is good enough.

It depends on how much you want the shiny and if you're willing to spend some time on it. I would recommend RNGing if you want shinies for maybe an ounce of effort compared to people who soft-reset/breed/chain for them. If you do it right with RNGing, you're 100% guaranteed a shiny.
