Default Egg laying Behavior

Hi all, Hercules's as some of you will know laid a clutch before Christmas of 5 eggs. We removed them after she lost interest about 14 days. In March she laid another clutch of 4, and after about 10 days she lost interest. We only removed the eggs at the beginning of this week.

Yesterday she laid another egg. So I assume another clutch is on way.

I am worried that I might have a chronic egg layer. I know this can be harmful to her.
She seems already to be ignoring this egg. On both previous lays she did not poop in the cage, and only wanted out of the cage for a few minutes every so often. This time she is pooping in cage and wants out all the time.

I need some advice please. Is this a sign or being a chronic layer, can I assist her to stop?

She is eating and drinking and pooping normally. She has begun to love a cold shower and wants one as often​ as I will give her one.

Any help/advice is greatly appreciated.
