Will call ducks nest off the ground?

Ive had a problem with rats taking eggs from nesting ducks. Thinking of making some nest boxes round 10 inches to a foot off the ground with a platform for landing/access. Will the ducks nest in these ?

I'm not a duck expert but I would give it a go, maybe place an egg in the nest to get them started. Some ducks in the wild nest up high

Rats will still climb up and take or destroy the eggs, best bet is to lay poison to thin them out

I would get the rat problem sorted first..
