Grandparents D/D x g/g will produce

100% D/g (generally these are known as black or "hybrid" black rather than black lace which would be D/+ (the + being a wildtype gene)). Hybrid blacks are darker than black lace.

D/g x D/g will produce :-

25% g/g golds, like their grandparent
25% D/D blacks, like their grandparent  
50% D/g "hybrid" blacks, like their parents

Other genes could have been lurking in the grandparents which could complicate the picture.

nice looking youngsters

Blessed are the cheesemakers!
