Honestly, I think your brooder may be a bit too small, and too warm all closed up like it is. It's very difficult to get a proper cool zone in plastic tub brooders like that. Only the space directly under the heat source should be at the 'target' temp, the cool zone should be at least 20* cooler. Overcrowding and overheating tends to lead to pecking issues.
