I've double checked and did not find duplicate entries in contacts.

The duplication only applies to family members. Other birthdays for

friends and others show only one entry. These contact groups are no different

the family group.

If you have added birthdays, or other events within the Contacts App they will appear in your calendar. This could explain the duplication. If you check the details for each of the duplicated event, it should show the source of the info.

If you look at the example below, you'll note there are two entries for Leeann's birthday. The one with the little gift symbol beside it was entered as part of my data for that particular contact. The other entry was entered via the calendar app. If you see the one with the little gift symbol, double click it to reveal more info, including at the bottom "Show in Contacts".
