Do ducks use nesting boxes like hens do or do they just lay their eggs anywhere?

Mine prefer covered cat boxes for their nests. I prefer to encourage them to use nestboxes, the eggs stay much cleaner and are easier to find,. Ducks are good at hiding eggs...and covering them in mud and poop.
Sometimes. Mine used wooden cheese boxes one year then got tired of them.
