 Nature Breeding: Truly Random?

Apologies in advance if this should go in the questions thread, I'm a little confused about what goes where.

When breeding without using items, are the egg natures random or do they depend on species or parent natures or something like that?

On my team, I decided that I wanted a timid Charizard and a timid Porygon-Z. Much to my surprise, the Charizard was very easy to get as I was rolling in timid Charmanders in my first batch. I decided what the heck, and went for a randomly good IV'd one. Fortunately the timids kept coming. I got the Charmander I wanted and moved on. Now I breed for a timid Porygon and I get a few other natures over and over again, only occasionally something outside of the same four or five.

I am aware that items can be used for this, but seeing as my Pokemon weren't holding any items I am wondering why the natures aren't coming up closer to random...

Has anyone else had this problem or anything like this?

thanks in advance...

Location: Nova Scotia. Yeah, It exists.
I tried breeding my Rash Ditto and Rash Houndoom for hours, with and without items, and It took me almost 40 eggs to get a Rash Houndour.

Well actually your right...except that it's the FEMALE parent that should hold the Everstone & not the Male parent if you want this chance to count...
