If Porgs are not herbivores, then they can eat the tribbles. Otherwise the latter will outpopulate them in short order as they do not seem to have an apparent need for a source of energy to do so.
I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in his stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen's Counciler or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate, who is more devoted to "order" than to justice; who constantly says: "I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I cannot agree with your methods of direct action"; who paternalistically believes he can set the timetable for another man's freedom; who lives by a mythical concept of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait for a "more convenient season."

Given the resources available on their island, and the fact that they have predominantly front facing eyes and prominent canines, the Porgs' diet is almost certainly the same as the puffins they CGId over. So small fish, molluscs, etc.

We do get a look at their teeth and they have two 'canines' which are normally for holding meat in place, so I suspect they do a bit more hunting.

Tribbles still do need to eat - remember that their reproduction was maintained by the grain reserves and material stores. They don't magically generate babies.

The mighty Tribble Empire shall reign triumphant!

Until the Porgs call for help from their ally Chewbacca, bringing the full might of the Wookies to their aid. ;)
"Our progress in degeneracy appears to me to be pretty rapid. As a nation, we began by declaring that "all men are created equal." We now practically read it "all men are created equal, except negroes" When the Know-Nothings get control, it will read "all men are created equal, except negroes, and foreigners, and Catholics." When it comes to this I should prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretence of loving liberty -- to Russia, for instance, where despotism can be taken pure, and without the base alloy of hypocracy." - Lincoln.
