Do neutrons and protons have wave-like properties similar to those of electrons?

Yes, all matter has both wave-like and particle properties- including protons and neutrons. The concept is just typically used with quantum mechanics due to the small scale because large scale matter has a wavelength that is far too short to be detected.
