In 5th gen, the female parent has to have the Hidden Ability to pass it down, and in 6th gen, it works with either parent. Either way, you have to have one with the ability Drought. You can get a Drought Vulpix in the Dream World (which unfortunately I think it is down) if you are playing B(2) or W(2). If you are playing X or Y, you can a Drought Ninetales through the Friend Safari.

It has to be the Female with the hidden ability.

Try using a ditto to breed Ninetales. I have gotten hidden abilities by breeding ditto with a Pokemon that has a hidden ability so use ditto. If you want a vulpx with drought, you have to go to the dream world but the dream world is shut down for B2/W2. You can get it on Pokemon X/Y in the friend fire safari.

His Pokemon he's breeding don't have Hidden Abilities. And even if they do have hidden abilities, breeding with a Ditto doesn't improve the chances of the offspring having the hidden ability.
