That's awesome! Although I have to say, you might as well train your Pidgey to Pidgeot. There's no use in breeding it. You may be thinking that there could be like a 50% or at least 10% chance or something, that the offspring will be shiny, but sorry to say, it's not. The chance for an offspring hatching to be a shiny pokemon (even if one or BOTH of the parents are shiny) is still the same as it would be to encounter it in the wild, which is 1:8192. This does not mean that out of every 8192 pokemon that you see, 1 WILL be shiny. This just means that out of EACH pokemon you encounter, there is a 1/8192 chance (0.012207%) of it being shiny.

Well, I hope that helps.

PS: This of course excludes the PokeRadar which you can pretty much pinpoint where shiny pokemon are located through chaining. But for Gen III games, what I said above is the case and if you don't chain for shiny pokemon in Gen IV, then the above statement is true too.

Yeah, I don't know where you read it, but encountering and hatching shinies is still the same chance.
