    Ours don't, they just sleep on the ground or in their "nesting box" we have (rubbermaid tub that's sideways). Some do, not sure what breeds. Ours are Pekin.

    domestic mallard derived breeds don't roost....

    Muscovies will.

    some wild breeds of ducks will, but mallards do not.

    Hope that helps! Welcome to our little community of duck lovers! Soon you will be sucked in to the cuteness and probably end up like the rest of us -with more ducks then you ever planned on keeping. lol.
