    Default Bee math?

    So Im trying to do some bee math and find answers and cant seem to find or understand maybe so I thought yall might be able to help. I have a queen cell with an egg in it and would like to know 1- how long until its capped 2- how long until she emerges and 3 how long until shes laying? I found some of the info but haven't been able to find specifically how long until its capped. Thanks a lot yall!

    Egg hatches on the third day, the cell is sealed 5 days later, on day 8. The virgin emerges on day 16, and should be laying about 11-12 days later.

    Thanks guys that's exactly what I needed. I split a hive yesterday and am just trying to figure out when I can expect the new queen.
