Assign checkbox a default value

If I am using a checkbox like this in my template:

<perch:content type="checkbox" id="show" value="Yes" label="Show on Website?" />

can I assign a tag attribute default value using default = "No"?

I can see this in the docs for text fieldtype but does it work with checkbox?

Checkboxes only have one value - that of the value attribute - or no value at all. You can't give them a different value.
