Personally I never have, but I have caught two wild shiny pokemon, a mudbray and a sneasel. That is so far it for me as far as shinys go.

If you use the Masuda Method (breed a foreign Pokémon with another region's), the odds are much higher. In a bunch of the previous games, I've tried and bred a bunch with this method. My most tedious was Houndour on White 2, since I spent a really long time completing the Dex to get the Shiny Charm, then bred for a few months before X and Y came out, and it took probably over 1700 eggs to get the darn thing. In that instance, I actually took about 400 more eggs than probability should have allowed.
Bulbapedia has some good numbers for the odds.
