its just if her poo is getting hard for her to control & she lets one loose in the nest - poop over an egg will suffocate it, so you don't want that
if you think she's coping fine, then don't change anything from normal
if she's done a poop close to the nest, or on the edge, or in it, you need to change what you're doing - then I'd go dry pellets & make sure there's water to drink
you're the best person to judge, you can see her!
