    Having set up my contacts and calendar on iCloud I can't understand why it won't display my contacts' birthdays. The birthdays appear on iCal on my Mac which is now only displaying my iCloud calendar and the same is true for my iPhone calendar - only my iCloud account is not showing the birthdays. I set up iCloud on my wife's mac and iPhone and my parents' Mac and iPhones and iCloud.com displayed the birthdays without any problems. I made sure that the birthdays calendar was checked in iCloud preferences and also checked on the calendar itself but still no luck. I have also checked the birthdays in my contacts to make sure they are in the correct format.

    Any ideas? :confused:

    Birthdays in iCloud Calendar not showing

    I have the the same problem.
    I have set up on iPhone4, iCal and iCloud and all seem to sync perfectly except for the iCloud Birthdays.
    Like you I have set my wife's iPhone and iCloud Calendar up and she has Birthdays showing.

    The only differences I can see is:
    1. She is not set up on a mac with iCal.
    2. I have 2000 contacts (40 with B'days) and she has 250 contacts (40 Birthdays).

    Thoughts anyone?

    Same here

    Birthdays not showing up in iCloud Calendar. However, they do show up in iOS 5 and Snow Leopard iCal. Contacts in iCloud do contain birthday info... so the info is there... but iCloud Calendar isn't processing it.:(

    Just had a look at mine and they were deselected in iCloud preferences. Selecting Show Birthday Calendar worked with no probs for me.

    My birthdays calendar is finally displayed properly. I haven't changed any settings since I originally set up my iCloud account so looks like Apple have been doing something behind the scenes. Oh well, nice that it got sorted out.
