I have a FEMALE speed boost torchic and am breeding it with a MALE field egg group pokemon. They are producing eggs but every single torchic that hatched did not get the HA Speed boost, but instead had its normal ability. I have hatched about 36 eggs so far, none came out with the HA. Is speed boost torchic not possible to breed? What am I doing wrong?

PS the female is holding destiny knot, male has no held item.

My first question is where did you get the SB Torchic? If someone traded it to you, it's possible it is poorly hacked. Meaning it technically has its hidden ability, but the hidden ability flag in its data isn't set, so it doesn't get passed down. The best way I can think of to check is to evolve it to Combusken. If the ability becomes Blaze, then my guess was accurate. But if it stays Speed Boost, then you're just unlucky.

Thank you, it was definately a hacked torchic because its shiny with all perfect IVs and speedboost, on top of being female. I will try to get a different torchic, thank you for clearing this up for me. :)

If you'd like, I can get you a legit Speed Boost Torchic. Gender and IVs not guaranteed, but if all you need is the ability, then send a PM my way.
