Breeding for shinies is such a daunting process, and it's not uncommon to go over a week without even one egg. You could breed one Pokemon and never get a shiny using the daycare because of how few eggs you can get. Rather than increase the chance of one laying, how about just increasing the frequency? Since daycare eggs can go over the 12-egg cap, it might be a problem if the chance were raised too high.
While I don't personally care about the daycare that much, it's a pretty core feature of any Pokemon game and frankly, I feel it's lacking here.
BETTER IDEA: Base the Daycare off of click activity (all credit to PokeTrade)
EDIT 2: Increasing either the frequency or the chance serves the same purpose, and either way, it's suggested that we have a backlog of eggs in case an egg pops out and we aren't on the claim the first.PokeTrade wrote:What about increasing the frequency depending on how much you've clicked the last 24 hours?
If you have +1000 clicks for example it's every 30 minutes instead of every hour
+2500 clicks = every 20 minutes
+5000 = every 10 minutes
EDIT 3: For clarification, increasing the frequency of egg checks can be done without increasing the frequency of payment charges and daycare levelups.
EDIT 4: Due to concerns about keeping a ridiculously huge backlog over months of letting the daycare run, it may be preferable to have a backlog that will only hold enough eggs to last for a few days or a week. Opposition for a timed backlog is strong.
EDIT 5: Look, mom! I can count to 5!
